Living Stronger Together

The Living Stronger Together support group provides a safe environment where individuals with chronic illnesses can share their feelings and experiences without judgment. The positive atmosphere allows participants to share or just listen.

The group is led by a licensed medical social worker, Cathy McAllister, who describes the meetings as “refreshing and healing for tired bodies and spirits.” Individuals are welcome to join at any time.
