Metastatic or Advanced Cancers
Women coping with a metastatic breast cancer diagnosis are dealing with a myriad of issues all at once: treatments, medical appointments, physical well-being, mental health, social needs and family dynamics. The experience of trying to connect all these demands into a cohesive daily life plan can feel overwhelming and often these demands can seem disconnected.
The To Life! mission is to help you bridge those needs and demands; often working collaboratively with your doctors, family and friends to ensure you are receiving the support you need for your individual journey. Whether you are looking for support groups, one-on-one mentoring or just information on other treatment options, To Life! and its staff will help you find what is right for you.
Our MetaThriver Support Group addresses the unique challenges of women dealing with advanced cancers. Facilitated by Debra Nosik, LCSW and Martha McCormick, MS, EdS this group meets on the Third Wednesday of most months from 6:30 - 7:30 pm currently via Zoom. If you have never attended and wish to join us, or have questions, please call Melanie McCulley, Support Services Program Manager at 518-439-5975 so that we can expect you.
