The volunteers have been attending events in the Chinese community to educate the public on the issue and gather petition signatures. TAKE ACTION by sending your MLA an email.



確診癌症是人生的轉折點。加拿大防癌協會的「癌症關懷服務」能為您安排跟一位有類似經歷的癌症康復者傾談,讓你感到溫暖和鼓勵。我們受過培訓的義工會細心傾聽患者的心聲,分享他們戰勝癌症的經歷,在情緒上給予您有力的支持。這裏讓我們分享一位資深義工Cinnie 助人為樂的義工生涯。
