Build a Community Support Group
Every day, more than 550 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer. Family and friends can be a wonderful support system but sometimes may not understand the emotional impact if they have never been through a cancer diagnosis. Connecting face-to-face and online with others who are going through or who have gone through a similar experience can be beneficial and life-changing.
This gift will expand the number of in person community support groups across Canada and support our online community, CancerConnection.ca. These in person and online support groups give Canadians with cancer, including those living in remote communities, the opportunity to connect, get support, exchange information and find comfort and hope. Now that’s the power of community.1xmatch
