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.

Hope & Cope

Dr. Albert Chan, a psychologist at Maggie's Centre in Hong Kong, paid a visit to our Wellness Centre to learn more about our approach. Maggie's Centres provide practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

Dr. Chan provides one-on-one counselling, family counselling and runs a weekly men's support group. He was most impressed with the Wellness Centre and with our use of cancer experienced volunteers, a model that he believes would work well in China but would not be appropriate for Hong Kong.

Dr Albert Chan, psychologue au Centre Maggie's, a visité notre Centre de bien-être, afin d'en apprendre plus sur notre approche. Il a été fortement impressionné par notre Centre et par les services assurés par des bénévoles, fortes de leur expérience du cancer, modèle exemplaire qu'il croiit pourrait être appliqué en Chine, mais ne pourrait pas servir à Hong Kong.
