McGill Cares Webcast: Cancer Survivor Provides Support to Others

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 12:00to12:30

Join us on September 16 at noon for the next webcast in our weekly series, McGill Cares, designed to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster, Alzheimer Care Consultant and Founder of the McGill Dementia Education Program, will explore topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.

Cancer Survivor Provides Support to Others

Gwen Nacos founded Cedars CanSupport after recovering from cancer in 1988. While undergoing treatment, she noticed that many people receiving cancer therapy did not have personal or family connections to provide the practical and emotional support that she found so essential to her own recovery.

Ms. Nacos will share the story behind why she founded Cedars CanSupport, a program at the McGill University Health Centre that works in collaboration with the health care team to improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families. This dedicated team of professional staff and volunteers provides free emotional support, educational services, complementary therapies and practical resources.

This free webcast is open to all.
