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.

iThrive is your guide to the many complementary therapies available at Hope & Cope and the Jewish General Hospital’s Segal Cancer Centre. You can download your copy here.

Wellness

Living well with cancer is important at every stage. Relaxation and meditation techniques are easy to learn and to practice on your own. 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.

Hope & Cope

“I get so much more than I give.” That’s the answer we often hear when we ask our volunteers what motivates them to give their time to Hope & Cope. Compassionate, wise, knowledgable, creative and caring, our volunteers are the BEST! Thank you on behalf of the staff as well as the patients and caregivers whose lives you touch in ways too numerous to count!

“Je reçois tellement plus que ce que je donne.” C’est la réponse que nous entendons bien souvent quand nous demandons à nos bénévoles ce qui les motive à donner de leur temps à L’espoir, c’est la vie. Compatissants, pleins de sagesse et de savoir, créatifs et prévenants, nos bénévoles sont les MEILLEURS! Grand merci de la part du personnel, des patients et des aidants dont vous avez changé la vie de toutes sortes de manières, trop longues à énumérer ici!
