Garnet Health Medical Center, formerly Orange Regional Medical Center, will offer a free, virtual gastrointestinal (GI) cancer support group the second Tuesday of each month beginning November 9, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

“The GI cancer support group provides an ideal setting for information sharing, insight, advice and encouragement.” said Sara Sargente, Garnet Health Medical Center Head & Neck and GI Cancer Navigator. “It offers participants an opportunity to learn from others who face the same challenges and allows them to talk about their experiences.” 

Garnet Health Medical Center’s GI Cancer Support Group brings together those who have been diagnosed with any GI cancer including colon, rectal, stomach, anal, esophageal, biliary, gallbladder, liver and pancreatic cancer. This group will provide education, resources and a confidential forum for patients and their families or caregivers to share their common fears, concerns and experiences. This group hopes to assist in guiding preservation and restoration of physical and emotional health while living with a gastrointestinal cancer diagnosis.
