Community Conversations

HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre Seeking Community Feedback

To ensure all those facing cancer and their loved ones in Waterloo Region and Wellington Country have the supports they require, HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre is holding community conversations with the diverse communities in Waterloo Region. 

The results of these fruitful community conversations will drive decisions regarding programs and services currently being offered by HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre.  The Canadian Cancer Society states that approximately 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime[i]

HopeSpring wants all those facing cancer and their loved ones have all the supports they need, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, creed, religion, socio-economic status, health status and residency status.

“By speaking directly with our diverse communities and finding out what supports they need, we provide cancer support to anyone affected by cancer, in any community,” said Jane Mitchell, Executive Director of HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre.
