CancerBridges

An initiative to connect Alberta cancer survivors with the resources they need to make the rest of their life the best of their life. The CancerBRIDGES Survivor Network exists to promote and raise awareness of relevant survivorship resources for Albertan cancer survivors that help the transition from active treatments back into everyday life.

It also provides opportunities for survivors to get involved in research studies and gives them a voice to make changes within the cancer care system.

Mission: “To engage and empower cancer survivors throughout their cancer journey by providing support, information and opportunities to connect with other survivors and be directly involved in the cancer care system.”
