Cancer Support Group


The Touched By Cancer Support meetings are held the 2nd Monday of every other month from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the Madera Clubhouse Gold Room. Meetings will be held January, March, May, July, September and November. HOWEVER, PLEASE CONTACT US ANY TIME IF YOU NEED OUR ASSISTANCE. We share how cancer has touched our lives in a private setting. Cancer touches each of us differently. We support those who are patients, caregivers, friends and relatives of those touched by cancer. We support those who have lost loved ones to cancer through friendship and a caring manner.

If you wish to attend another support meeting in the months we do not meet, the Living With Hope Support Group of Sahuarita meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 1:00 to 2:30 pm at the Sonora Clubhouse at 600 W Camino Rancheria Blvd. Contact Coordinator, Jan MacLaren at 520-232-3813 for more information.

We fight cancer by working to raise funds for cancer research through the American Cancer Society. Thanks to generous Quail Creek residents, our Quail Creek Fights Back Relay For Life Team raised $33,000 in 2019 to help fund patient programs and dollars for cancer research. The University of Arizona yearly receives grant money from the American Cancer Society to fund research. In 2018 six research grants were issued to the University of Arizona from the American Cancer Society.

Quail Creek supports the American Cancer Society programs through our certified Road to Recovery drivers who are available to drive patients for medical treatment. WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO BE TRAINED AS CERTIFIED ROAD TO RECOVERY DRIVERS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP CANCER PATIENTS GET TO THEIR TREATMENTS OR DOCTOR VISITS, PLEASE CALL TERRIE O'DIERNO AT 648-7192.
