Hope Center offers support for cancer patients and their families.

Hope Center offer support groups for cancer survivors, spouses, caregivers, teens and children.  The program, nicknamed “SKIPPERS,” is held every other Thursday evening at 7 p.m. for the entire family.

Hope Center, a ministry of Lowell Church of Christ, is located at 299 N. Burr in Lowell.

Adult meetings offer acceptance, compassion, coping skills and hope. Newly diagnosed to long-term survivors are invited to share stories, successes and challenges.  Caregiver sessions offer education, coping skills and support.  Teens and children sessions offer games, crafts, snacks and fun.  All activities are age appropriate.

“SKIPPERS sessions are fun!” said Kerri Midkiff, Hope Center Founder and Survivor.  “Sharing is encouraged, but never required.”
