A cancer support group has begun for those currently experiencing a cancer journey. Kathy “Joy” Huijbregts, recipient of the 2018 Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation’s Person of Courage award, is leading the support group. Diagnosed with cancer in 2014, shortly after moving to Boulder City, she continues traditional as well as natural treatments with eight health care providers.
Joy will share her unconventional cancer journey taking participants from their fear and shock diagnosis to experiencing cancer as a sacred journey of self-awareness and personal growth. The group meets at the Smith Center each Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. The weekly theme will address individual’s needs and concerns in a positive environment while exchanging research and resources, with time for discussion and questions. “Through acts of forgiveness, gratitude, and love; putting faith and research into practice, and understanding ‘sign-posts,’ one learns HOW to let go of fear and to embrace life.” Joy Huijbregts holds a Master’s degree in Education, curriculum and program development; is a licensed educator, researcher, and public speaker.
