The Foundation offers a variety of services and activities in its regional centres for those with cancer. We are here to assist you in living better through this ordeal on a daily basis.

Whether it is to help you relax, to clear your thoughts, meet people, share with people or let yourself be pampered, you will find the activity that suits your need and that will do you good.
Coffee get-togethers provide people with cancer and their loved ones the chance to share their thoughts and feelings in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
 
Together, they can talk openly about their experience and concerns, while finding support and reassurance.

The workshops of the Look Good Feel Better program help women with cancer to overcome the effects of treatments on their appearance. Using cosmetics and hair alternatives, women can again take charge of their looks, adopt a more positive attitude while facing cancer and feel better about themselves.

Under the direction of a team of volunteers specializing in skin care, participants learn special make-up techniques and hear practical advice on skin and nail care, on the hygienic use of cosmetics and hair alternatives.

The painting workshop enables a person with cancer to explore a new way to express his or her emotions. Painting is a diversion which, without tiring the body, entirely absorbs the spirit. The goal is to have fun and to set aside other concerns for a time. Creativity is one key that allows access to a greater inner personal space. It is one way to enter into ourselves in a relaxed manner.

IYou do not need artistic talent or experience. You need only let yourself be guided by the volunteer leading the workshop to explore through colour and form.
