Wellness and Support Groups
"This group has been a lifeline of support and comfort during this scary time
of this new diagnosis and post surgery and treatment.
Being able to connect with fellow survivors and ask questions has helped me through this battle.
Thank you for being there." TM

Nicki's Circle Groups have served hundreds of women monthly in Colorado since 2005.
The groups are open to anyone who has battled gynecologic cancer and to their caregivers. At meetings, information is exchanged about ovarian & gyn cancer, current medical research, and how women can effectively advocate for obtaining the best health care possible.
This is also a place to share the emotional ups and downs of living with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
All groups are free of charge and are facilitated by a healthcare professional.

From Katlyn: "After losing my Aunt to ovarian cancer, it created a special place in my heart to do what I can to help others battling ovarian cancer. My loss equips me with empathy and an overall understanding of the journey women experience with ovarian cancer. Furthermore, I am a part-time practicing therapist in Denver and Englewood.
