Cancer Center in Sedona offers support groups

June 28, 2010

Cancer impacts many individuals within our communities, either as a patient, family member or caregiver. When someone is coping with a cancer diagnosis they can find support and encouragement from others who have encountered similar situations.

Patients, survivors as well as their families and caregivers are invited to participate in the Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare’s “Chat Room.”  The “Chat Room” is an informal gathering of individuals meeting at 1:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of the month at the Cancer Center of Northern Arizona Healthcare Sedona Campus, 3700 West Highway 89A.

The “Chat Room” is designed to support and encourage those affected by cancer. Because cancer affects more than just the patient, the setting provides patients, survivors, families and friends an opportunity to share their feelings and learn from one another as well as provide support to each other. Most people find that knowing others have had a similar experience is both empowering and healing. The “Chat Room” is facilitated by clinical social worker Virginia Viol, L.C.S.W.

For more information about the “Chat Room” or for other services offered at the Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare, visit or call 928 204-4160.

The Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare are located in Flagstaff and Sedona. Each center offers patients the latest technology in cancer treatment and supportive services.
