Supporting the Cancer Fight
In times of crisis, it's good to have someone to turn to who has traveled the same road. King's Daughters support groups for patients and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis can help.
Look Good, Feel Better
Co-sponsored with the American Cancer Society, this support group provides tips and techniques for those undergoing cancer treatment to help them overcome appearance-related side effects. This program is offered monthly. For more information, call (606) 408-7067.
Stop for Life
At King's Daughters, we encourage people to stop tobacco use for life through a variety of treatment and support services in the inpatient, outpatient and community setting.
Programs are offered free of charge and are provided by a certified tobacco treatment specialist. On the inpatient side, the tobacco treatment specialist meets with patients whose physicians have ordered nicotine replacement products or Chantix during hospitalization.
The tobacco treatment specialists help each individual develop a quit plan and provide continuing support to each participant through the Stop for Life tobacco-free support group, which meets weekly; face-to-face counseling; and telephone support.
For more information, a referral or to Stop for Life yourself, contact the program by calling (606) 408-9760 or (606) 408-9764.
Breast Cancer Support
Women battling breast cancer have unique questions and concerns. This support group provides a community of women who have faced - or are facing - some of these concerns. By sharing together, each member is strengthened. The group meets quarterly. For more information, call (606) 408-7067.
Reach to Recovery
Co-sponsored with the American Cancer Society, this active group of breast cancer survivors provides personal and informative support individually to patients as needed.
Road to Recovery
Co-sponsored with the American Cancer Society, trained volunteers drive patients to and from physician appointments and therapies. This service is available in Boyd and several surrounding counties. Talk to your oncologist or nurse for more information.
