    This is great! Thanks for putting all these resources on here! 😀 Does anybody know of a DCIS support group in Southern Cailfornia? They have one in Northern CA but I can’t find one down here. I just called UCLA Simms/Mann Center and they told me they used to have one but not anymore. Thank you and white light! 😀

      I too have called around San Diego Cancer Centers and there is no DCIS specific support group. I went to a Breast Cancer support group and it wasn’t what I was looking for. Please let me know if you hear of a DCIS- specific support group in So. cal! Thanks Marimar….and white light back!

    Hi dp4peace,

    There’s a group in Palo Alto apparently. I called there and they gave me some numbers to call in Southern California. I will let you know if I find one down here. Thank you so much for this website. It’s a great source of information and makes me feel less alone with all this. Thank you and white light!
