Comedian/Cancer Survivor to Address Group. Acclaimed humorist, comedian and author Brenda Elsagher turns tragedy into triumph, showing how being diagnosed with cancer prompted her to re-evaluate her life and change it for the better. It wasn’t a cleaner house she sought, but adventure, deeper relationships and more fun! Elsagher, the author of four books – “If the Battle is Over, Why am I Still in Uniform?”, “I’d Like to Buy a Bowel Please!”, “Bedpan Banter” and “”It’s in the Bag and Under the Covers” – will share her message of hope and healing through laughter during the next meeting of the Youngstown Ostomy Support Group. Sponsored by Humility of Mary Health Partners, the group will meet from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Cedar Room at St. Elizabeth Boardman Health Center, 8401 Market St., Boardman. The meeting is free and open to ostomy patients, cancer patients and others who are interested. Refreshments are provided and parking is free. For information about the meeting, call 330.480.3440.
