Project Self-Sufficiency announces the formation of a breast cancer support group which will meet on Tuesdays, March 18 and March 25, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Women currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer, as well as breast cancer survivors, are invited to attend.

The group will be facilitated by Haley Ward McCracken, Breast Health Educator at Project Self-Sufficiency.

The group will aim to present up-to-date information about breast cancer, and provide comfort, teach coping skills, help to reduce anxiety, and provide a place for participants to share common concerns and receive emotional support.

Project Self-Sufficiency’s breast health education program is funded by the Komen for the Cure North Jersey Affiliate.

The agency offers free mammograms to income-eligible women six times a year.

In addition, breast health education is provided to area middle schools, high schools, colleges and civic organizations.

Project Self-Sufficiency also sponsors a team in the annual Race for the Cure, which will be held on Sunday, May 4.

Since the program’s inception, the organization’s breast health education effort has reached more than 70,000 girls and women in Sussex County.

Project Self-Sufficiency is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton.

To register for the breast cancer support group, or to find out more about the agency’s breast health education services call Project Self-Sufficiency at 973-940-3500.
