Support Connection, Inc. announces a free program:
It’s Okay to Grieve, Let’s Talk: An Open Discussion for Men Living with Loss.
It will be held via Zoom video conference on:
Tuesday, March 28, 2023, from 7 - 8 pm (NY Time).
Open to men nationwide who have lost a spouse or partner to breast, ovarian, or any other gynecological cancer. Pre-registration is required. Must register no later than 5 pm (NY time) Monday, March 27, 2023.
To register, call Support Connection, 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290. It is never possible to prepare yourself for the loss of a spouse or partner. Learning how to cope with the grief and the impact on your life is hard to do alone. Speaking with others who have also been through it is an excellent way to learn and feel less alone.
This program is open to all men who have experienced loss, regardless of how much time has gone by. The facilitator will lead the discussion, which will include the following topics:
- There is no one way to grieve: no right way, and no wrong way.
- Dealing with unexpected “trigger points” and reminders.
- Coping with loneliness.
- Giving yourself permission to move forward.
The open discussion format provides a safe and supportive venue to talk with others coping with similar challenges. Share concerns, experiences and information with others who have been there too.Discussion Leaders: Alan Bandes and Alan Forst are volunteer facilitators who have personally experienced the loss of their beloved wives to breast cancer.Support Connection, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization that provides free, confidential support services and programs to people affected by breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer.
