I’ve had a Recurrence

Finding ways to live with a recurrence or with metastatic illness can be challenging. We can help.

Peer Support

The wisdom of the lived experience has always been at the core of Hope & Cope. Peer support is offered in a variety of formats by volunteers, under the supervision of our professional staff.

Resources

Our Think Smart, Live Well workshop will give you the tools to help you manage stress and cope with everything that follows a recurrence. Worried about losing your hair? We can help you manage the appearance related side effects of treatment.   Visit our Resource Room, where you will be fitted with a wig or other head-covering that suits your personality and your sense of style. We also have attractive mastectomy bras and prostheses. If you haven’t done so in the past, you can learn simple makeup and skin care techniques by registering for one of our monthly Look Good, Feel Better Workshops. Our library offers a vast selection of printed material for you to read.

Lou’s House, Hope & Cope’s Wellness Centre, is where you can focus on wellness in mind, body and spirit. From nutrition to exercise to creative therapies and more, our Wellness Centre has it all.
