      Verna, try checking the website for the foundation for womens cancer. They usually have a resource for support groups all over the U.S. Best of luck to you, Carm.

      Have you clicked on the resources tab at the top of this page? It is a zip code filtered search that will bring back results based on where you live. There might be something listed there. And the American Cancer Society is also listed, call their toll free number that is listed there and ask, they will also search for you.
      Also there is a group online that you can register for that will set you up with someone that will call you, it's called immerman's angels. They have a personal touch, even if it is by phone.

      Hope you find what you are searching for.

      Check you local Hospitals Cancer centers in your 250 miles or more radius web sites. Many people travel for specialized care. If that Hospital has a support group you can call the organizers and see if any one is in your area..They may not tell you their name but if you attended the group you might meet the person or people.

      And check the web sites of cancer organizations for your cancer type as they may have a phone buddy or a call in support group. While its not in person its something and better than nothing.
