Zoom Video Conference 7pm
It’s Okay to Grieve, Let’s Talk: An Open Discussion for Men Living With Loss

WHEN: Tuesday, September 21, 7 – 8 pm (NY time)
WHERE: ZOOM video conference

Open to men nationwide who have lost a spouse or partner to breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer. Pre-registration is required. To register, call Support Connection, 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290. Must register no later than 5 pm (NY time) on Mon., September 20.

It is never possible to prepare yourself for the loss of a spouse or partner. Learning how to cope with the grief and the impact on your life is hard to do alone. Speaking with others who’ve also been through it is an excellent way to learn and feel less alone.

This program is open to all men who have experienced loss, regardless of how much time has gone by. Our facilitator will lead the discussion which will include following topics:

There is no one way to grieve: no right way, and no wrong way.
Understanding the challenges and uncertainties that accompany loss.
Dealing with unexpected “trigger points” and reminders.
Coping with loneliness.
Giving yourself permission to move forward.
The open discussion format provides a safe and supportive venue to talk with others coping with similar challenges. Share concerns, experiences and information with others who’ve been there too.

DISCUSSION LEADER: Alan Bandes is a volunteer facilitator who has personally experienced the loss of his beloved wife to breast cancer.

All Support Connection programs are FREE. Pre-registration is required.
To register, call 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290.
