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.

A warm welcome to the newest volunteers who recently joined our Hope & Cope family, pictured here at Volunteer Orientation. They were joined by veteran volunteers who wanted to refresh their knowledge of Hope & Cope's programs, services, policies and procedures.

Nos bénévoles font preuve d’une sagesse qui est le fruit de leur expérience et qui leur permet de comprendre pleinement les préoccupations des patients et de leur famille. Nous souhaitons une chaleureuse bienvenue à nos nouveaux bénévoles.

National Social Work Month

At Hope & Cope, social workers Hinda Goodman and Sandy Lipkus, and future social worker, Rifka Hanfling, meet with patients and caregivers, assessing their needs and referring them to appropriate resources offered by Hope & Cope, the hospital and the community. They also are responsible for interviewing, supervising and training our corps of 450 volunteers and they supervise social work students at the bachelor’s and master’s level. Our Board Chair and former Executive Director, Suzanne O’Brien, is also a social worker. Their professional expertise is invaluable and greatly appreciated by all of us at Hope & Cope!

An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
