Survivor Facilitated Support Groups & 1-on-1 sessions available.
Women at all stages of breast cancer are welcome to attend our support groups; before treatment, during treatment and/or several years beyond diagnosis. These groups are led by trained facilitators who are breast cancer survivors. One-on-one conversation as well as group discussion is available. Resource information is also accessible.
Members of BCAK do not give medical advice.
Support and understanding in a safe and nonjudgmental environment.
Group members have the opportunity to share information and concerns with
each other in a sympathetic manner.
If you are interested in attending one of our group sessions,
please, contact the BCAK office or call the support line at (613) 331-6652.
We will, upon request, set up a telephone / virtual support call. This is to help those outside the City who cannot easily commute to BCAK. Call the BCAK office for further information.
Regular Support Group:
Our facilitators are breast cancer survivors who volunteer their time once a month to allow women who have been affected by the breast cancer journey to come together in a secure and safe environment to talk about their situations and concerns.
Many times the women leave the group, having made new friends and with a feeling of relief, knowing they are
not going through this ordeal alone.
The exchanging of information between these women makes this group
important for all. We are a group of kindred spirits who appreciate being
able to share the same journey.
Those who attend gain confidence that there IS life after breast cancer.
*Due to covid we have had to suspend all in-group contact. *
As of Feb 8, 2023, we are now working on re-establishing these groups and will post information as soon as it is available.
