Triangle Bladder Cancer Support Group meeting: Tuesday January 14, 2020



Hello folks and Happy New Year!


Unbelievable times at the last meeting where we celebrated the holidays with a marvelous pot luck feast. More food than you could imagine and EVERYTHING was great. Honestly, I think we could start a gourmet restaurant with this talented team. Again, thanks for the support.

We continue to get interest from newly diagnosed patients and survivors who are still experiencing changes. This month’s meeting will be no different where patients and caregivers are looking for answers from those who’ve been there.  Come on out.

There’s no live speaker on tap this month but we will have a short video on Bladder Cancer Immunotherapy.  I suspect most of our time will be conversational.

As always family, caregivers, friends, patients and survivors are welcomed.
