Cancer Prayer Support Group

We are a spiritual prayer support group that embraces, honors, and accompanies all touched by cancer. 

You are welcome, whatever cancer journey you are on––past or present––as patient, loved one, or caregiver.

This is a safe place to share and be held, whatever you are going through. 

We check in and listen respectfully. We hold one another in trust, hope, and love. We honor confidentiality.

Our 90-minute sessions meet via Zoom at 10am Pacific time on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. There is no fee for this support group.

We welcome drop-ins. Come for a visit to learn more!
