LGBT CANCER SCREENING REMINDERS + FACILITIES + RISK ASSESMENTS
The Roanoke Diversity Center in partnership with the National LGBT Cancer Network bring you on-line LGBT Cancer Support Groups
Cancer diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment life can be challenging and scary, especially for LGBT folks. Even scarier is feeling alone. We are proud to offer online LGBT Cancer Support Groups for anyone in our community who has been diagnosed with cancer, is in treatment, or is a post-treatment survivor. Moderated by a Clinical Social Worker, and staff from the National LGBT Cancer Network, these discussion forum topics may include:
● Coming out to healthcare providers
● Sexuality and relationships after cancer treatment
All references to the LGBT community on this web site are meant to be inclusive to ALL : LGBTQQIAA2P….(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Ally-heterosexual/straight, 2-Spirit, and Pansexual.)
