Meetings are 90- minute evening sessions via Zoom, facilitated by two Oncology Social Workers Tracy and Nancy. Each month’s session will combine a themed therapeutic activity combined with discussion.

We send links upon registration and resend links the day of the event. Please call us at (212) 268-1002 if you have not received the link in advance of the session.
