There is a new cancer support group starting on Tuesday, Dec 3, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at the Grayling Baptist Church. Anyone that has been touched by cancer in any way is welcome.

The group is being organized by Cathy Ludwig. She was diagnosed with cancer back in April and found no groups to turn to for help in the Grayling area. Her brother and nephew were also diagnosed.

Cathy’s lung cancer is very small and near the aorta, making treatment difficult at this point.

Right now, my treatment is up in the air. They can’t do chemo. They can’t do radiation. They can’t do surgery. The doctors found someone to do a biopsy and he is booked up at the moment.”

Cathy says she is thankful for Grayling Baptist and the Rev. David Longstaff for allowing her to use the church building for this group.

Whether you have supported a loved one or been touched by the disease, you are welcome to join. There is no cost. People attending will have others to share what they and they loved ones have been and are going though.”
