Support Group

The Lilies of the Valley Support Group meets monthly on the last Tuesday of the month (if you are a Lilies member, you will get a meeting reminder email about a week before each meeting). Meetings are held at Clearview Cancer Institute, 3601 CCI Drive N.W., Huntsville, Alabama. We meet on the 2nd floor of CCI in the Community Room from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Most of the meetings are for Lilies only since we often discuss matters pertaining to personal, medical matters. But occasionally there will be a speaker on a topic of interest to family members or caregivers. You will be notified in your meeting reminder email if family members or others are invited to attend.

2017

Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 28, 5:30 pm, 2nd floor community room at Clearview Cancer Institute. We are planning on having a nutritionist talk to us about nutrition before, during and after treatment.

During our February meeting, we had a special guest who brought us all a teal “No Worry” stone in honor and memory of her sister who she lost earlier this year to ovarian cancer. It was a special night, and we appreciate her remembering us and her sister.

Our January 31 meeting was Lilies only. Nurse Practitioner Leigh Ann Childress brought us up to date on the latest in ovarian cancer treatments, including some newly approved PARP inhibitors.
