Cancer Connection


IU Health West Hospital’s Cancer Connection support group is a monthly support and education opportunity which provides an opportunity for cancer patients (whether receiving treatment at IU Health West or not) and their loved ones to gather for information and support. The program consists of two distinct elements: first, guests gather together for a presentation on a universally-relevant topic or issue. Then, the group divides into two support clusters—one for patients and one for loved ones and caregivers—which allow the opportunity for frank and open discussion about the challenges each group faces.

Upcoming Cancer Connection programming includes:

Tuesday, September 9
6 - 8 pm
Topic: Cancer Update - Old Hoaxes, New Hope, presented by Gordon Watson, MD

Tuesday, October 14
