The group is open to anyone who has or has had cancer, as well as to those who have cared for loved ones with cancer. No prior writing experience is necessary! The group provides a safe and supportive place for us to share our stories. Our focus is on the story, not the grammar.
The group is led by Dr. Natalie Mariano, a physician who found that writing helped her deal with her own experience with cancer.
Those interested in joining are asked to contact Dr. Mariano at or 508-274-4268. If you're interested in the group please call to inquire about future groups.
