Alex Smith, "Wellspring Cancer Support Centres Background and Programs Offered at Wellspring Chinguacousy"

Tuesday, 13 March 2018 - 7:00pm

Our guest speaker is Alex Smith, who has been the Centre Manager at Wellspring Chinguacousy Cancer Support Centre for the past four years.

We consider Wellspring Chinguacousy to be one of the most valuable community resources available to both cancer patients and their caregivers.  Our long-time member Bob Vandrish has been a Peer Counselor there almost since the Centre opened, but sadly, he very seldom gets to talk to a man with prostate cancer.

There are many programs offered, many of which could benefit men whether they have been newly diagnosed or have a lot of experience dealing with our common foe.  All Wellspring programs are offered free of charge.

Alex has kindly written his own introduction:

“My presentation will consist of a brief history of wellspring Canada, our infrastructure, insight into the types of supports and programming we can offer, a focus on the Cancer Exercise program and then any Q and A that may arise.  It is a fairly informal talk.  I will have brochures and program guides available to anyone that would like them.

“Wellspring provides supportive care programs and services, at no charge, to help men, women and children living with cancer, and those who love them, overcome the many practical, emotional, physical and informational challenges that follow a cancer diagnosis.”
