This network provides free and confidential emotional support and resources. A patient is matched with a CanCare volunteer based on a variety of criteria including cancer site, treatments, age and gender. Support is provided over the phone and through email.
CanCare volunteers regularly visit cancer patients in hospitals through a Hospital Visitation Program. Volunteers help patients and their family members feel cared for, participate as a partner on the medical team and offer emotional support beyond a patient's medical needs.
