Touch of Courage

Please Join Us

You are invited to attend the Touch of Courage Breast Cancer Support Group, sponsored by the Beyond Pink TEAM, where you will find a relaxed, informal gathering of women who have walked in your shoes. We spend time discussing issues pertinent to breast cancer, and sharing our experiences. In addition to the Support Group, speakers are scheduled quarterly to provide more information on issues that are important to you.

There is no membership, dues, or promises of regular attendance, and you are under no obligation to speak. This is your opportunity to learn and join with women in similar circumstances.

Touch of Courage meets:

When: First Monday of each month (unless it is a holiday)
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Where: Kimball Ridge Building
2101 Kimball Avenue Waterloo, Iowa
Meeting Room # 1

Please join us, we’d love to have you! If you have questions, please telephone facilitator Pat Buls, at (319)232-8691.
