Date:12/18/2012

Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) December 18, 2012

Malecare Cancer Support and The National LGBT Cancer Project is proud to announce the new Indianapolis LGBTQ cancer survivor support group will have its first meeting on January 12, 2013.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to offer cancer support services to the Indianapolis LGBT community with an affiliated cancer survivor support group,” announced Darryl Mitteldorf, LCSW, Executive Director of Malecare Cancer Support and the National LGBT Cancer Project. "LGBT persons who are battling cancer also have the added stress of navigating a medical system that is sometimes hostile to LGBTQ persons," said Mr. Mitteldorf.

The Indianapolis LGBT cancer survivor support group will meet on the second Saturday of each month starting January at 10 AM. at the Damien Center, located at 24 North Arsenal Avenue.

The group will be facilitated by prostate cancer survivor, John Keiber.

“This new LGBT Cancer Support Group will give myself and others with cancer the opportunity to reach out, support, and network in the gay community,” said Mr. Keiber.
"We believe it is important that these individuals and their care givers have a safe place where they can gather to share concerns and receive support without having to reveal their sexual orientation to strangers who may not be accepting or welcoming. This support group also will allow members to focus on issues unique to LGBT individuals, such as problems with their partners being recognized as family, the lack of insurance and other benefits they would have if they were in a heterosexual relationship, and the lack of support from their family of origin,” said Mr. Mitteldorf.

"We've seen thousands of Lesbian and Gay cancer survivors across the United States gain life extending help from groups like these....we are certain that the Indianapolis LGBT group will prove a vital source of support and hope to cancer survivors," said Mr. Mitteldorf.
