Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Coping with Cancer Support Group

Started in 1990, our Coping with Cancer Support Group provides an opportunity for persons with any stage of cancer, as well as family members or friends of someone with cancer, to come together to discuss concerns and share ideas in a safe and welcoming environment.
Information, support, and stress management strategies are provided to help improve coping with this serious illness. Confidentiality is key to the success of the group, as is a non-judgmental attitude, and participants feel free to pursue whatever type of treatment they feel is appropriate for them.
Meetings are facilitated by a health care professional, and are held at our Palliative and Supportive Care Office or virtually via Zoom weekly or bi-weekly, depending on need.
