We know that receiving a cancer diagnosis can be a devastating experience; the emotional strain can be as shattering as the physical disease itself. HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre exists to offer you information, emotional support, and the tools needed for empowerment, personal growth and self-help.
We help people meet the challenge of cancer.
The atmosphere at HopeSpring is warm and relaxed. Anyone affected by cancer can call or drop in during our operating hours. No referral is necessary. Our trained volunteers generously offer their skills, inspiration and knowledge to help others living with cancer. They are available to share information about programs and services or offer emotional support in an informal environment. HopeSpring is not a residential centre and we do not offer medical advice or counselling.
Since the doors opened in 1995, we have supported those who have been affected by cancer in many ways. We provide a connection to others who have had experience with a cancer journey. We offer support groups, classes, relaxation therapies, a boutique for wigs and camisoles, workshops and access to information through our resource library. We are a community-based non-profit organization that relies entirely on donation for daily operations and programs. The confidential services we offer at HopeSpring are all free of charge.
Find out more about HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre from our History & Mission Statement. If you wish to donate, please visit our Donation page.
Those who come to HopeSpring are looking for a greater sense of confidence and control while coping with cancer. Our visitors include:
- those who are newly-diagnosed,
- those who are in active treatment, and
- those well beyond their medical appointments.
After a few words with our receptionist, first-time visitors usually meet with someone who outlines our programs and services. From there, a visitor may:
- sign up for a course,
- choose a wig,
- browse through our resource centre, or
- have a private conversation with someone who really understands the impact of cancer.
Ongoing visitors will often head right into their activity; perhaps a yoga class, reiki treatment, or group session. Our environment is relaxed, informal, and supportive of your individual needs and preferences. Many people are surprised at the warmth and laughter within our Centre.
