CANCELLED Cancer Coaching: Making a Difference for Families Facing Cancer


Join a representative from the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation to learn about a health service called Cancer Coaching. 

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 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.
