‘Facing Cancer Together’ forum set for May 1

Join the Coborn Cancer Center and Angel Foundation from 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 1 at the Coborn Cancer Center, CentraCare Health Plaza, St. Cloud, to learn about communication and coping skills when a parent or grandparent is dealing with cancer diagnosis or treatment.

Parents, grandparents, caregivers, teens and children meet in peer groups to participate in age-appropriate activities or discussions to help them cope with the impact of a cancer diagnosis of a parent or grandparent.

The Angel Foundation staff has expertise in helping children ages 5-18 manage the fear, stress and uncertainty that comes with a cancer diagnosis in a loved adult. Also, the staff facilitates an education session for parents and grandparents on communicating about cancer with children and teens.

A light meal will be provided. For more information or to register, call (320) 229-5199, ext. 70659. The program is free, but preregistration is required.
