Cancer Support Ministry

Salem provides Cancer Support to help you find encouragement, connection and hope along your cancer journey. Our program is for anyone who is coping with cancer – newly diagnosed, in treatment, post-treatment, survivor, or caregiver. It is our privilege to pray for individuals coping with cancer, and our Cancer Prayer List is a growing document that is shared with members of our Cancer Support Prayer Team, who are dedicated to lifting others in their daily prayers.


We continue to work on finding the best way to share God’s love with those coping with cancer:  by telephone, through in-person group meetings, ZOOM meetings, or one-on-one consultations.


We’re doing something FUN for our July meeting….MOVIE NIGHT on Tuesday, July 16, 2024. We’re heading to Marcus Ronnie’s Cinema for the 7:15 p.m. showing of “INSIDE OUT 2,” an animated comedy/adventure, rated PG, which gives life to various emotions: joy, sadness, fear, anger, and disgust, and introduces a “new” emotion, ANXIETY. Cancer patients certainly experience all of these emotions and we hope that we all can find some humor in seeing how they are characterized in this film. For more information on how to join our group, please contact Susy Schindler by calling 314-352-4454 or email


Our typical monthly meetings, whether in-person or via Zoom begin with a devotion that leads to our topics of discussion, which include:

  • What’s Important
  • Questions
  • Prayer
  • Relationships
  • Healthy Living
  • Faith
  • Healing
  • Stress Reduction
  • Communication

Please note that we do NOT give medical advice. When questions arise concerning your cancer care, we will always urge you to talk to your doctor. We will do what we can to help you educate yourself to make wise personal decisions regarding your own health and well-being.

We invite you to be a part of our cancer group family.

Each of us has experienced cancer in some way – as a patient or caregiver – so we all know the challenges that accompany a cancer diagnosis.

Our purpose is to encourage, uplift, and support you with the ever-abundant love of God during your cancer journey and beyond.


Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6
