The Advance of Bucks County - - NEWTOWN AREA -

“vou have can­cer.” Those words can shake a woman to her very core when she hears them from her doc­tor. But there is a place to go for sup­port from oth­ers who have been there. They call them­selves the Gyni­Girls – women who are liv­ing with gy­ne­co­log­i­cal or any other type of can­cer – who meet once a month in ianghorne to share hugs, laugh­ter, tears, and a sym­pa­thetic ear. “Heal­ing starts from the heart,” ex­plains Su­san Apol­lon, the psy­chol­o­gist who helps fa­cil­i­tate the group. “vou can­not heal your body if yRX GRn’W finG a way WR ORYH yRXUVHOf fiUVW. :hHn yRX finG a place where you can feel peace and safety, your body re­sponds at the cel­lu­lar level. vou be­gin to im­me­di­ately cre­ate the chem­i­cals that boost im­mu­nity.” That peace­ful place is cre­ated at the Cen­ter for Women’s Health when the Gyni­Girls meet to guide and re­as­sure each other throughout the heal­ing process. The meet­ings, which are free and open to the pub­lic, take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on the third Wed­nes­day of the month at the Cen­ter for Women’s Health, lo­cated at 540 North Wood­bourne Rd., ianghorne. The next meet­ing dates are Sept. 19 and Oct. 17. To reg­is­ter, contact Mon­ica at 215-750-6611, ex­ten­sion 125.
