New group offers social support for young adults with cancer

Mass Appeal

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis is hard enough medically – never mind the social and emotional part. That’s why survivor Lisa Zacks started Girls on Chemo, a social support group for young people who have had cancer. Lisa joined us today to talk about this unique group for people 20-50 years old, and how people find support through sharing personal experiences. 

You can find the group on Facebook at: and ask to join (it is a closed group so you must ask to join and you will be sent a couple of questions). You can also contact the group by emailing:
