National Philoptochos Department of Social Services Initiates Telephone Cancer Support Group


The National Philoptochos Department of Social Services has initiated a telephone cancer support group for Orthodox Christians, 21+, who are undergoing cancer treatment.

The discussion group will “meet” on the telephone via conference call and at no cost to participants, and will be accessible nationwide to members of our community on six consecutive Thursday evenings from January 11 – February 15, 2018, 7:00pm – 8:00pm, EST. The group will be facilitated by Theodora Ziongas, M.A., who has a strong background in cancer patient services through positions she has held at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the American Cancer Society and CancerCare.
