Programs for Caregivers
If you’re helping a loved one through cancer treatment, then you are a caregiver. Although you can’t take someone else’s journey, you can share in that journey and provide invaluable support. Each caregiver has unique gifts they can offer at this difficult time. We often recommend the following programs to caregivers and family members.
Second Tuesday, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Joshua Maddox, Ph.D.
This group is open to anyone affected by having someone with breast or ovarian cancer in their lives. The group will discuss the challenges of being in a caregiver role, and gain support and psycho-education from other caregivers. There will be an emphasis on self-care in order to be an effective caregiver. Topics will vary depending on the challenges of the current group members.

Thursdays, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
A BCC tradition, these Thursday evening sessions are designed for people at all stages of treatment and beyond. Family members and friends are also welcome to attend. Respected local doctors and nurses answer your questions about various aspects of breast cancer. A therapist facilitates the discussion and offers support, while those attending share emotional and practical concerns and coping tips. Please see our calendar for scheduled speakers.
