Is anyone in or around Athens, GA? My dad is there and was just diagnosed. We're clueless and scared. Thanks, Margo

Informal support and advocacy gatherings in MN with our COLONTOWN Minnesota group. We do also have some Wisconsin members who are near the border. Meetings are in the Twin Cities areas. Unlike our two C.A.R.S. groups that meet on a set schedule, this group has occasional informal in person gatherings, and also participates in local and national advocacy, along with participation in an online FaceBook based support group for lower GI diseases (Lynch, FAP, Chron's Colitis, Colon Cancer, Rectal Cancer, Anal Cancer and more). Contact Kathryn for more info if you'd like to join us. Kathryn@KathrynsTravel.com or 612.220.9626

NEW YORK, NY

I just had my first meeting with a support group for Young Adults with cancer. It's for any type of cancer patient age 20-39. A small group so far but I really like it, and one other lady in the group in her 30's with stage 3 colorectal cancer.

It's through Cancer Care and we meet every Wednesday from 5:30pm-7pm in Chelsea in Manhattan. The group facilitator is named Kristen and can be reached at Ksuhu@cancercare.org to sign up.

Good luck all!

Everyone can look at the Cancer Support Community. I believe they were previously the Wellness Community, and merged with Gilda's Group, the group started by Gilda Radner's husband (Gene Wilder) after her death.

http://www.cancersupportcommunity.com

I attend a men's support group twice a month and it has been instrumental in me maintaining some level of (in)sanity.

They have centers all around the country/world. So look, there may be something near you.
