The Cancer Thrivers Network for Jewish Women is a friendship group for women who have been diagnosed with any kind of cancer at any time in their lives. While not a support group in the traditional sense, it is a group designed to enrich and empower Jewish female cancer survivors through activities, resources, education and humor, in a safe and caring environment. Women cancer survivors who do not identify themselves as Jewish, but who are part of the Jewish community–married to a Jewish spouse, have children that are Jewish, or are active in the Jewish community–are invited to participate.
