A LOCAL CANCER SUPPORT GROUP
John S. Harris and James A. Pharis, Jr.
The purpose of this publication is to share the joy that comes through encouraging persons who are living with cancer.
John and Ruth Harris have been active in the group since its inception. They started the group in 1977, John was still a pastor at that time, and there were five new cases of cancer in the congregation that year. He wanted to give adequate pastoral care to each of them and found the best way to do that was in a group. John and Ruth have participated in beginning a cancer support group in two other cities in Louisiana.
James and Jo Anne Pharis have been active attendees at the meetings of the group since 1988. the Pharises have also been active in leadership.
We think of ourselves as co-leaders.
