San Felipe Has a New Cancer Support Group

On October 9th, San Felipe’s first Cancer Support Group meeting came together at the new San Felipe Cancer Society location, in the Canaco building on Chetumal.

San Felipe's New Cancer Support Group

The First San Felipe Cancer Support Group

The meeting, which lasted a little over an hour, was held to help support San Felipe men and women whose lives have been affected by cancer. 20 current patients of the Cancer Society attended the meeting where Dra. Norma Contrares De La Madrid discussed the importance of proper nutrition, and Wendy Doman offered her services as a holistic healer to meet with patients bimonthly. The program was coordinated by Cancer Society clinic administrator Lic. Edith Fuentes Castillas.

The Cancer Society hopes to hold the Support Groups once a month, for an hour, to provide a place for people to ask questions, get informed, share their stories and find support.

Call the Clinic at 577-0280 for more information. You can also visit the Clinic during their office hours of 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
