Diabetic Support Group

Free and open to the public, this group is hosted by Summit Pacific staff for those individuals living with or caring for someone with diabetes. All ages are welcome, but understand this is a discussion group that may not be appropriate for the very young. With this group you will meet others affected by diabetes, share individual experience, learn from peers and gain tips and advice on managing diabetes. For more information and to RSVP, please contact Cindy Beck, Education Program Coordinator at 360-346-2297 or via email at cynthia.beck@sp-mc.org.

The group will meet virtually using Zoom each month, click here for more information.

Cancer Support Group

This support group is intended to offer support, compassion and understanding to anyone whose life has been impacted by cancer.
Those who have been diagnosed, survivors, as well as their family and friends are all welcome. Attendees can expect conversations surrounding similar fears, questions and frustrations that will help break the feeling of isolation. We want to help people recognize their own inner resources for strength, peace and healing. And encourage members to take an active role in their healing process and gain a sense of hope and control. Through the group, members can identify a range of strategies and tools for living with cancer, in addition to making new friendships and having a good laugh.

This support group will be held in Summit Pacific Wellness Center’s Olympic Room on the first Wednesday of every month from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Click here for more information.
