MENIFEE – Hope Hospice is partnering with Rancho Family Medical Group to offer the community free monthly breast cancer support groups in Hemet and Sun City, beginning Feb. 20. Hemet, and its surrounding areas, is underserved when it comes to support for breast cancer survivors. As of now, a regular support group is not offered to community members residing in these areas.

A Hope Hospice social worker or chaplain will facilitate the monthly groups, which will be offered at both the Hemet and Sun City Rancho Family Medical Group locations on the third and fourth Thursdays of each month.

The Rancho Family Medical Group in Sun City, located at 27190 Sun City Blvd. will host a breast cancer support group on the fourth Thursday each month, from 1-2 p.m.

Rancho Family Medical Group in Hemet, located at 3853 W. Stetson Ave., Suite 203, will host a breast cancer support group on the third Thursday each month, from 1:15-2:15 p.m.

For more information about the breast cancer support groups, contact Pam Chaput, Hope Hospice Community Liaison at (951) 746-9751 or
