Our Board for Christian Care has the responsibility to encourage and support the efforts of individuals and small groups who provide physical, emotional and spiritual help to our members and the larger community in time of need.
Cancer Companions walk with those coping with cancer (present and past) and their family members and friends. They provide safe, supportive environments for cancer families to draw closer to Christ.
Cancer Companions meets on Mondays at 7:00 PM at Via Christi hospital.
