A Support Group for People with Advanced Serious Illness

This group is for those with serious illness to meet and to connect with others.

Our goal is to provide a safe place for you to explore,

  • To freely say out loud and share what you are experiencing, thinking and feeling
  • To listen and learn from each other: what helps, what hurts and what heals?
  • To express your concerns about the impact your illness has on others and yourself
  • To talk about sharing information and having conversations with your loved ones

Sessions are open to people with serious illness. Meetings held virtually via Zoom. Link sent upon registration. Registration closes the day before the group.
