The Touchstone: Book Club/Support Group 

This group is for any breast cancer survivor who has received their last treatment more than 18 months ago. The group will meet monthly to discuss a book that focuses on cancer and coping. Discussing a book with characters on similar journeys can elicit empathetic conversations about our own journeys, and connect us to other survivors.

This group will meet the last Monday of the month, from 6 – 7:30 pm at the Adelphi School of Social Work in Garden City.
