Psychosocial - mariet

Other Care Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on October 17, 2011 View this journey (11 Experiences)

I also go to two groups that are led by my therapist, and to another one at Gilda's club. The two groups led by my therapist are DBT and Pain Management; the original group at Gilda's Club was called LAT (Life After Treatment) even though I haven't yet stopped dealing with problems from the surgeries and reconstruction.
I'm so grateful to Gilda's Club; I don't know what I would have done without all of the support--from their staff and from other patients. I tell anyone I meet who is taking the cancer journey to get in touch with Gilda's Club. There are programs for cancer patients, their families and friends, and some just fun activities that probably provide the greatest therapeutic benefit. While a group sits around doing some sort of craft, our stories and issues are shared, and resources provided, and its nice not to feel so alone.
