Tom Baker Cancer Centre (TBCC)
The TBCC has an entire department with a team of trained professionals in psychiatry, psychology and social work to help patients and their families cope with the emotional, psychological and social stresses that often surface as a result of cancer and its treatment. The team is available to patients from the moment of diagnosis onward and there are a number of free programs offered throughout the year.
This local cancer support centre offers many excellent programs free of charge that are designed to inform, support, and empower patients, families and caregivers by helping them to address the fear, isolation, disruption and practical problems which cancer can bring to our lives.
The CCS offers local peer support programs that are designed to put survivors in touch with someone who has already been through the same thing. This includes both telephone support and face-to-face group support. Check out their website for more information.
