Mission

Hope & Cope helps people cope with cancer. Guided by professional staff, cancer-experienced volunteers provide psychosocial support and practical resources that help patients regain a sense of control and well-being, reduce isolation and restore hope. Easily accessible and open to all, Hope & Cope is funded by the community and is located at the Jewish General Hospital’s Segal Cancer Centre and the JGH/Hope & Cope Wellness Centre.

Vision

Hope & Cope is a beacon to anyone touched by cancer. We are recognized as a leader in peer-based psychosocial care and contribute new knowledge and research to this evolving field. We are a strong member and supporter of the clinical care teams at the Jewish General Hospital’s Segal Cancer Centre and are connected to a network of community and academic organizations to remain at the forefront of supportive cancer care.

Hope & Cope has helped many, many thousands of people over the years. We offer more than 30 programs, we closed in on 1500 new intakes last year and up to 130 people are coming to Lou’s House every single day. But the real magic number is ONE. One staff, helping one person, one day at a time. One donor making a difference. One volunteer holding a hand or make that one phone call to say, ‘You are not alone.’ One survivor giving back by helping one other person. All it takes is one person to give the gift of hope.

"Il y a peu de succès là où il y a peu de rire." - Andrew Carnegie, philanthrope.

CJ does a happy dance after being informed that she won two free tickets to see Amy Schumer tonight at the Bell Centre! CJ is a huge Amy Schumer fan, and laughter and humour helped her cope during her cancer treatments. Thanks to the anonymous donor for this wonderful gesture.
