Coping with Cancer

The class is conducted by Ron Williams, M.S. in Counseling, Pastoral Counselor. He has also authored several books dealing with grief and loss. This class is for patients as well as family members but more designed for patients. It is a group style class that allows patients to talk about what they are going through and what is “normal” for cancer patients. The class will help patients gain a sense of empowerment, improve coping skills, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide support.

Coping with Cancer meets twice a month at the Russel Hill location, 3rd floor, East Room, 10:00am-11:00am. Please check our event calendar under the patient information tab for the meeting days.
