GALLIPOLIS — Holzer recently held a Cancer Support Group Meeting at the Gallipolis Medical Center.

Tammy Ellison, RN, Oncology Nurse Navigator, Holzer Center for Cancer Care, will be leading the monthly meetings and welcomed ideas on topics to feature at the upcoming sessions. This meeting featured Linda Jeffers-Lester, Holzer Heritage Foundation Manager, who provided information on the Holzer Therapy and Wellness Center in downtown Gallipolis.

The next Cancer Support Group Meeting is scheduled for Nov. 10, noon, at the Holzer Gallipolis Medical Center French 500 Room.

The Cancer Support Group is designed to help individuals, who either have cancer or are cancer survivors, and their loved ones understand cancer, manage treatment and recovery, and find the emotional support they need. The group will continue to meet monthly and will have guest speakers to discuss topics of interest for those in attendance. Lunch and evening sessions are being planned. For more information, call Ellison at (740) 446-5351.
