Everyone knows someone whose life has been touched by cancer.
On Monday, June 10, UHN's ELLICSR: Health, Wellness & Cancer Survivorship Centre hosted a National Cancer Survivors Day event to honour cancer survivors – to celebrate life after diagnosis. A 'survivor' is anyone living with cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through to the remainder of life.
"The number of people alive after a cancer diagnosis continues to increase as cancer is found earlier and treatments improve," says Dr. Pamela Catton, Director, ELLICSR Health, Wellness & Survivorship. "National Cancer Survivors Day was established to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful, fulfilling and even inspiring."
ELLICSR celebrates its third anniversary this week. It was conceived as a place where scientists, educators health care providers, survivors and community cancer organizations could come together to figure out how to revolutionize the cancer experience.
"I can't think of a better way to celebrate our birthday than to host National Cancer Survivors Day," said Dr. Catton.
Workshops of the day included: The Cracked Pot with Spiritual Care, Mindful Eating with ELLICSR Kitchen, Qi Gong with Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, Spontaneous Art Journaling, Laughter with Rob Hawke and more.
