Cancer Support Group

We apologize that the monthly Cancer Support Group is temporarily suspended. We are currently recruiting for an individual to serve as group facilitator. Thank you for your patience during this time.

For updates on the support group, please contact Joanne FortinĀ at 207-834-1353.

Northern Maine Medical Center sponsors a monthly support group for patients, families and friends of patients dealing with a cancer diagnosis. The NMMC Cancer Support Group is also supported by the Edgar J. (Guy) Paradis Cancer Fund Board.

The Support Group meets once each month, the first Monday of every month, from 7 – 8 pm at Northern Maine Medical Center’s Medical Library. The event is informal and occasionally includes a guest speaker. Light refreshments are served at the meeting. The event is FREE.

Social events are also scheduled twice a year: once at Christmas time and in the Fall of each year, a special education and support event is held as an additional opportunity for patients and families to come together and share their stories.
