Eastern Sierra Breast Cancer Alliance has begun offering yet another service to residents fighting cancer.
ESBCA has formed a support group as part of its ongoing efforts to provide financial as well as emotional support to all cancer patients.
The first session was offered in December. Dubbed the ESBCA Coffee Â & Cream Cancer Support Group Conversation, the meetings are being offered monthly from 9-11 a.m. at Jacks Restaurant in Bishop. The next session is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 3.
Each two-hour session is facilitated by ESBCA President Pat Ramirez, a nurse at Northern Inyo Hospital, and Melissa Myers-Place, an English teacher with a degree in education.
