How We Help

One size does not fit all

While Hope & Cope is known for the success of its peer support approach, we know it’s not for everyone.

For this reason, we offer many different ways for you to get the support you need, when you need it most.

Our professional clinical team will meet with you to assess your situation. Then, they will recommend the programs or groups that are best suited to you.

Forms of peer support

Hope & Cope pioneered the peer support model more than 40 years ago. This approach has helped countless cancer patients find hope throughout their cancer journey.

Our peer support volunteers have lived through the cancer experience. One of them is ready to support you when you need it, no matter the stage of your illness or your state of mind.

You can receive one-on-one support through peer mentors, or be part of support groups to share and hear from others. Reach out to us so a member of our professional staff can help find the best fit for you.

Sharing the knowledge

Education has always been an essential pillar of Hope & Cope. This was important over 40 years ago, when cancer-related information geared to the general public was hard to find.

It is even more important in our digital age, where there is a glut of information yet not all of it is reliable or credible. 

At Hope & Cope, we give students a hands-on learning experience in the world of cancer support. Through our partnership with McGill’s Community Health Alliance Project (CHAP), we let students get up close and personal with cancer patients, run engaging workshops, and have a hand in building our supportive programs.

It’s an immersive way for future healthcare professionals to get a real feel for the emotional and social sides of cancer treatment – perspectives you can’t fully grasp from a textbook. By working directly with people on their cancer journeys, students gain invaluable insights while making a positive impact on the lives of others.
