Jan 4, 2022 – Quincy Medical Group (QMG) Foundation and QMG Cancer Institute are announcing a new support group for all those who have been touched by cancer. Cancer Connect provides an opportunity for anyone receiving cancer treatment, cancer survivors, and/or caregivers to come together in support of one another.

Cancer Connect will be facilitated by Shari Robesky, MSW, LCSW. Robesky is the Oncology Social Worker at the QMG Cancer Institute. The group will meet every third Thursday of the month, starting Jan 20 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the QMG Cancer Institute located at 3301 Broadway St in Quincy.

Robesky said Cancer Connect provides a safe and comfortable place for people to find hope, develop relationships, and to come to know they are not alone.

β€œIt is our goal that those attending Cancer Connect will receive social, emotional, and practical support from others, as well as learn coping strategies, insight, and inspiration. Most importantly, we hope to have fun, despite the struggles they face every day,” she shared.

There is no cost to attend Cancer Connect. Drinks, snacks, and giveaways will be provided. Registration is not required.
