START with Wellwood
Wellwood empowers you to LIVE WELL with cancer. Everything we provide (whether virtual or in-person) is available at NO COST to anyone who has received a diagnosis of cancer, loved ones, and caregivers. As an accessible and inclusive space, we strive to be barrier-free for all.
For the period of time that it remains unsafe for immune-compromised people to gather, both of our sites remained CLOSED. We are offering our own virtual programs, classes, and groups, as well as online self-help resources and one-on-one peer mentoring. Even after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, these online services will continue, providing support to everyone who is unable or prefers not to physically attend programs at our sites.
We acknowledge the privilege in providing Wellwood’s safe gathering spaces on lands that Indigenous peoples have called home for thousands of years. Chedoke Hospital, formerly on the grounds of our community site, was an unwanted home to 1, 274 Inuit (many of whom were children) during a traumatic forced relocation for tuberculosis treatment. This is a promise to never forget the harm that was done.
