Upcoming Activities!

Cancer & Sexuality: Let’s Talk About It! June 10 at 11:30: From drops in hormone levels to damaged nerve function to nausea, fatigue and body image, cancer treatment can cause worrisome changes in sexual function and desire. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Sylvie Aubin, a psychologist specializing in cancer and sexuality. In this free webinar Dr. Aubin will answer your most frequently asked questions about this important, often neglected topic. Please submit your questions in advance directly on the registration form.

At Hope & Cope the health, safety and well-being of our participants is our number one priority. With this in mind, and following recommendations by public health, we are suspending all in-person activities (programs, support groups and classes) at our Wellness Centre until further notice. Rest assured that even though the Centre will be closed to the public, our staff and volunteers are here to support you as you cope with cancer. We are just a phone call away and encourage you to reach out to us with any concerns you may have at 514 340-3616, or 514 340-8255.
