August communique

Gradual Re-opening of our Wellness Centre 

We are excited to open our Wellness Centre to the cancer community. To ensure everyone’s safety, and in accordance with strict protocols mandated by public health, this will be a gradual re-opening. We are taking advantage of summer weather in July and August to begin offering a limited number of in-person classes and activities that will be held mostly outdoors.  

 

Please familiarize yourself with our COVID-19 safety protocols BEFORE you visit the Wellness Centre:  important instructions 

Opening Hours
July and August 2021: Mon-Thurs, 9 a.m.
 3 p.m., with occasional evening groups. 

Our volunteers and staff are eager to welcome you! 

New Support Group !

Women Newly Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Support Group

This support group is for women who have been recently diagnosed (within the past 12 months) with non-metastatic breast cancer, regardless of age, stage, or treatment plan. Take advantage of this opportunity to connect with others in similar situations, learn from each other, and get up-to-date information from various professionals with extensive knowledge about breast cancer treatment. Topics include nutrition, exercise, stress reduction and medical care.

This six session closed group is from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. starting August 11 until October 20, 2021.
