Ovarian Cancer Canada, in partnership with Wellspring Cancer Support, provides various peer support programs to support those diagnosed and living with ovarian cancer.
A variety of programs have been created to support your journey. For questions and more information about programs in partnership with Wellspring Cancer Support, please contact Marianne Fallis, Programs Associate, Ovarian Cancer Canada at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ovarian Cancer Peer Support program allows those diagnosed with ovarian cancer to connect with others who understand what they are going through. This program can help those newly diagnosed or those who have been living with the disease. Peer Support is available in both French and English. You will have the opportunity to meet privately with a specially trained Ovarian Cancer Peer Support Volunteer who has also experienced ovarian cancer and knows what you are going through. You can meet by telephone or via video conferencing.
Ovarian Cancer Support Group is a professionally led program that meets weekly for six weeks. Participants will explore relevant themes, including coping with change and will have an opportunity to share within and build a community of support.
You must register for this program and commit to the six weeks. Spots are limited per group, however, as additional groups and spots become available, you will be notified.
Ovarian Cancer Circle is a professionally led monthly virtual support group. This is an ‘open’ group, meaning participants are welcome to join as they are able. Under the leadership of a healthcare professional, this group provides a community of support to discuss relevant issues such as relationships, sexuality, side effects, anxiety, fertility and other challenges of living with ovarian cancer.
