No Bladder Cancer Support Group Meeting in August and September

  • Just a reminder that the Triangle Bladder Cancer Support Group is taking a couple of months off while folks are enjoying summer vacations and time with family and friends.  We will resume meetings on October 10th. Meanwhile enjoy the rest of the summer and some very cool webinars that Paula located.

    Remember, your member partners and I are always available for questions, crisis situations or if you just want to talk about the weather. Just call or write.

     summer, sharpen your chemo knowledge, learn to be a proactive patient, see what is new in non muscle invasive disease and more.
