Men Surviving Cancer, a Central Montana support group, will suspend its monthly meetings until September.
“This seemed like the right thing to do,” said Dick Brumley, one of the co-founders of the group. “The men in our group are particularly vulnerable to the pandemic, and we thought it would be wise to wait until we can meet safely again in complete confidence.”
Men Surviving Cancer meets the second Thursday of each month with timely and informative presentations and the opportunity to meet and share with men who are battling and surviving cancer.
This is part of an effort by Central Montana Medical Center and others to help men, whatever cancer they have and wherever they are in their battle, to find additional tools and support.
Since its organization, the group has enjoyed vibrant and candid conversations about cancer, its effects and treatments, as well as informative programs.
“We invite any man who has been diagnosed with cancer to rejoin us in September,” said Brumley. “Since we formed last year, we’ve been able to share experiences and important information with each other at our monthly meetings.
“We look forward to continuing that.”
