Women create cancer support group for East Texas

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - There is now an East Texas support group for women battling cancer. The group held its first luncheon in Tyler Thursday and is called "You, Me and Big C: When Cancer Comes Calling".

Women will meet the first Wednesday of every month and will commit themselves to one mission a month. The group is free of charge and is open to any woman that has been diagnosed, is going through treatment, or is a survivor of cancer.

"So often, we do not want to tell our care givers our deepest feelings," said Suzanne Daniel, who organized the event. "We don't want to upset them, make them worry so we just don't talk about it. But if we are in a room with a group of women who have felt exactly the same thing we can nod our head and say, yes, that's exactly how I felt."

The first group meeting will take place February 3 at Marvin Methodist Church in Tyler. You can contact the church if you want more details.
