Pink Alliance Expands Services to Houston, Peach Counties

Pink Alliance Expands Services to Houston, Peach Counties

Breast Cancer Support Group to Begin August 1

MACON, GA (August 15, 2012) – Central Georgia Breast Care Center at The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) is pleased to announce the addition of The Pink Alliance HoPe Chapter, a monthly breast cancer support group for Houston and Peach Counties.

The HoPe Chapter will host its first meeting with a kickoff party on Wednesday, August 15 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. The group will meet at the Flint Energies Building located at the intersection of Highway 96 and Sutherlin Drive in Warner Robins.

Subsequent meetings will take place on the third Wednesday of each month at the same time and location. Light lunch will be provided.

Cancer support groups have grown increasingly important as advances are made in cancer research and survivors live longer. The Pink Alliance provides a forum for breast cancer patients and survivors to communicate emotions and personal experiences with people who understand and relate to their situation. This connection will serve as a source of inspiration in the middle of an otherwise difficult time in life. Meetings will also be educational, as discussions will trend about research, treatment and current issues. 

Although The Pink Alliance has offered support to women in Central Georgia since October of 2010, many women could not travel to Macon. The addition of The Pink Alliance's HoPe Chapter will assist women in Bonaire, Kathleen, Perry, Warner Robins, Byron and Ft. Valley as they fight and recover from breast cancer.
