sharingVillage Cancer Survivor Groups
sharingVillage Groups (sVG) is a self-help/educational organization dedicated to the social, emotional, physical and spiritual well being of cancer survivors from time of diagnosis through surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and beyond in groups of unconditional support.
Given the realization that cancer challenges the human condition on all fronts, it is the goal of sVG to encourage patients to gather the courage and dignity necessary to confront their own personal battle through a design of patient to patient mentoring, community, family and individual support utilizing "wounded healers," those who have walked the path the newly diagnosed will begin.
The sharingVillage Groups' program is designed to be an integrative complement to medical treatment using compassionate healing, thereby treating the patient as a whole. These groups are hand made by and with professional group facilitators who are similarly diagnosed.
