Mercy Offers Cancer Support Groups in April

Posted on: April 5, 2011

Canton, Ohio: Whether you’re a current or former cancer patient, a caregiver, family member or friend, Mercy Medical Center’s FREE cancer support groups offer a safe place to share with others who understand. Facilitated by nurses who are specially trained to support cancer patients, Mercy’s Cancer Support Groups offer guest speakers and related discussions to help participants through their journey. Mercy Cancer Center offers the following support groups during the month of April:

Women of Courage and Purpose

Cancer Support Group
(For individuals diagnosed with ANY type of cancer)
April 14th (Held on the second Thursday of each month)

If dialing from long distance, please call 1-800-2WE-HOPE (293-4673) to register for either group.

Mercy Cancer Center is not just a building. It’s the heart of Mercy’s integrated cancer program. Mercy Cancer Center coordinates Mercy’s broad range of diagnostic procedures, innovative treatments, national cancer research trials, complementary medicine program and support services. The American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (CoC) awarded Mercy Cancer Center the Outstanding Achievement Award for excellence in cancer care. Mercy is the only area hospital–and one of just 95 facilities nationwide–to earn the award, along with the CoC’s three-year re-accreditation with commendation during our last survey in 2008. Fewer than 20 percent of cancer programs in the United States attain this superior recognition. This means most cancer patients can receive cutting-edge cancer care right here in our community.

Mercy Medical Center, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, operates a 476-bed hospital serving Stark, Carroll, Wayne, Holmes and Tuscarawas Counties and parts of Southeastern Ohio. It has 620 members on its Medical Staff and employs 2,500 people. Mercy operates outpatient health centers in Carrollton, Jackson Township, Lake Township, Louisville, North Canton, Plain Township and Tuscarawas County. A Catholic hospital, Mercy Medical Center upholds the mission and philosophy of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine and continues to be responsive to the needs of the community.
