Cherokee Cancer Support Group meeting

March 7 at 5:30pm at Betty D’s place located at 40 Goose Creek Road in Cherokee.  The guest speaker will be Dr. Frances Owl-Smith, MD, an EBCI tribal member who will speak about reading and understanding a pathology report.  Pathology reports play an important role in cancer diagnosis and staging (describing the extent of cancer within the body, especially whether it has spread) which helps determine treatment options.  A potluck dinner will be served at 5:30pm.
