Our Social Activities offer you another way to spend time with other women who’ve also heard the words “You have cancer.”
Perhaps you’re not interested in a support group but would still like to meet and interact with other women in a safe, comfortable environment. Maybe you’re looking for a way to “escape” for a little while, to focus your mind on a fun, relaxing or creative activity, with others who understand what this feels like. Our social gatherings have what you’re looking for.
Our goal is to provide a variety of options to meet your needs and to enhance your quality of life while living with cancer.
Some social activities meet monthly. Others meet at different intervals throughout the year. Please view this page often to check for new offerings. You can also visit our calendar.
All of our programs are free. Pre-registration is REQUIRED. Call us: 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290.

At the April Book Club, we will discuss The Rose Code by Kate Quinn.
The Rose Code is a historical fiction mystery novel by Kate Quinn, published in 2021. Set in England during and just after World War II, the novel follows the experiences of three women who participate in Bletchley Park’s code-breaking operation, as well as their efforts after the war to uncover a traitor among their colleagues. Their stories highlight the social changes brought on by World War II, especially concerning gender dynamics.
Kate Quinn is the author of several historical fiction novels for adults, including The Empress of Rome series and The Alice Network. Please be advised that The Rose Code includes mention of sexual assault.
Discussion leaders: Fran Contino and a Peer Counselor. We are always looking for good book suggestions.

Coffee House – Live Music Programs

The Coffee House Music Program is being offered in loving tribute to Don, one of Support Connection’s greatest cheerleaders. Don had a true love and appreciation for music. He encouraged others to find joy in music and understand the benefits it has on health and wellbeing. In his honor, we are sharing a series of virtual live music programs.
The Music Programs are open to clients and caregivers. To register or for more information, call Support Connection at 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290.
Besides evoking emotions and conjuring up beloved memories, listening to music can offer many healing benefits. Research shows that music can assist with:
