Description

CancerCare’s Men’s Program is proud to present a series of virtual workshops focused on the needs of men affected by cancer – men with cancer and men who are cancer caregivers. The workshop modules will each focus on a specific issue that are known to impact the quality of life of men who are learning to cope with cancer and treatment. The objective is to assist and support men in living with cancer with the purpose of providing resource information, health care education, as well as suggestions for improving life ‘with cancer’ skills.

This workshop will utilize a secure video platform. Participants will have the option to call in if they do not have access to video technology.
