Aboriginal Cancer Care Program
The Cancer Care Program is a new program launched by VNHS in response to the rising incidence of cancer among Aboriginal people. The program aims to build a community of support for individuals who receive a cancer diagnosis, their families and loved ones as well as cancer survivors.
The Cancer Care Program also aims to:
- Increase awareness, prevention and
- screening opportunities for early detection of cancer,
- Create partnerships with existing cancer agencies and programs to build a culturally supportive cancer program within the Medicine Wheel’s four quadrants, and
- Build on the strengths of Aboriginal people in managing their cancer journey.
The program offers health kitchens, talking circles, cancer resource information, education, support training as well as elder support.
