Cancer Coaching: Making a Difference for Families Facing Cancer

About 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetimes, and over 7000 people in our community will be diagnosed with cancer this year.  This means we all know of someone facing cancer, however, more and more people are surviving cancer and living longer, and the experience of each person and family during this time is unique.  A survey of cancer survivors in the Ottawa area identified that although many were very satisfied with their diagnosis and treatment, there were important gaps in their physical, emotional, informational and spiritual care.  The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is addressing these gaps by offering a health service called Cancer Coaching.  Whether you or someone you know is facing cancer, come learn more about the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, the impact of Cancer Coaching, how to access this health service, and other community resources.  Join us in our efforts to support people facing cancer and help with what matters most to them.
