Friends Helping Friends Touched by Cancer®


and their loved ones, too!

Friends Together is a non-profit organization of caring people located in Alpena, Michigan. We offer support and assistance so that no one in our community will have to deal with cancer alone.

We offer cancer support groups for men, women and teens, caregiver groups activities, community involvement and entertaining events.

While we are proud of what we have accomplished this year, we are even more proud of our community! They have chosen to support our families, neighbors and friends who must deal with cancer.

Together as friends we learn and share. We support and encourage. We understand that excellent cancer care means a holistic approach to healing and wellness touching every aspect of our lives: physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental. We know that when we ail in one aspect, we can call on the reserves of the other three to help heal.

Contact us if you or someone you know has been touched by cancer or join one of our free cancer support groups.

Friends Together offers “the softer side of care”.
