Cancer Support Group to welcome guest speakers

Eric and Courtney Riggs

LOCK HAVEN — The Cancer Support Group will hold its monthly meeting on Thursday, March 14 at 7 p.m. in Conference Room B of Susque-View.

Special guest speakers will be Eric and Courtney Riggs, local business owners of Coco Holistic. They will be speaking on the power of resilience in the face of cancer.

Resiliency is a positive approach that helps people face challenging experiences such as cancer and other serious illnesses by viewing these situations as opportunities to learn, grow, develop on a personal level and to bounce back.

Eric is a survivor of adolescent leukemia and has overcome the many obstacles one is faced with during and after a cancer diagnosis with an exceptional mindset. He looks forward to sharing his story and how cancer changed his life.

Courtney is an Integrative Healing Arts Practitioner and specializes in Clinical Hypnosis and Life Coaching. Together, they are sharing their experience and knowledge in an effort to empower those struggling with cancer both past and present.

The Cancer Support Group is facilitated by Fran Decker, MSW and hosted by Susque-View. The program is free and open to anyone who has a diagnosis of cancer, both newly diagnosed and long-time survivors.

Family members and friends are also welcome. The group meets the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in Conference Room B of Susque-View.

For more information about the support group, call Fran Decker at 570-748-4302.
