The following is a message from Colorectal Cancer Canada

March marks the beginning of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Under the slogan “Cancer doesn’t wait, why should you?”, Colorectal Cancer Canada’s campaign reminds Canadians of the importance of getting screened because colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable if diagnosed early.

Cancer Can't Wait Heading to Saskatchewan

What We've Done So Far
BLOG: Complying With New Alcohol Guidelines an Uphill Battle

The recent guidelines from the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) have certainly caused controversy.

The new guidelines, released last month, were blunt: No amount of alcohol is safe to consume. At best, no more than two drinks should be consumed a week. Anything more increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and, of course, cancer.

But complying with these guidelines will be difficult for most.

CCSN marks February Advocacy Days
The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network marked several advocacy days last month. On February 15th, we marked International Childhood Cancer Day with an article about the impacts these cancers have in adulthood.

We marked Rare Disease Day on February 28th by outlining our shared goal with the Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders (CORD) to get quick and equitable access to treatment to all suffering from rare disorders in the country.

Finally, we marked Heart Month by showing the link heart disease and c
ancer treatment share.
Stay up to date on advocacy days

Good Morning!

We are excited to announce the next addition to our flagship webinar series!

About this Webinar: A cancer diagnosis throws us into the wilderness. Suddenly life becomes both amplified and fragile. The spiritual dimensions of this crisis go far beyond religious practice or personal belief. They go to the very core of who and what you are in the world. Explore how to keep your keel deep in the water when the storm of cancer threatens to capsize you. Use the crisis for conscious creation of deep love, strong spirit, and tender authenticity. As challenging as it is, cancer can be potent fuel for a richer experience of life, relationships, and self-discovery.

About the Presenter: Rev. David Maginley is a spiritual counselor at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and award-winning author of Beyond Surviving: Cancer and Your Spiritual Journey. David has also survived cancer four times, which resulted in a profound near-death experience and explorations in the nature of consciousness and the connection of body, mind and spirit. He knows what it’s like to have cancer from both sides of the hospital bed, and has a sense of this life from both sides of the veil.

He is ordained with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, specialist with the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care, member of Canadian Association for Psychosocial Oncology, the International Association for Near-Death Studies, and is featured in the documentaries Here Right Now and When You Die.

The Power of Reframing on the Cancer Journey With Dr. Rob Rutledge

Life after a cancer diagnosis can be challenging both physically and emotionally.  How we work with the difficult thoughts and emotions can influence not only our physical health but how we live our lives. In this seminar,  Oncologist Rob Rutledge normalizes the roller-coaster of emotions and distorted thoughts, and offers practical ways to untangle ourselves from the thoughts that don't serve us - allowing us to choose a values-driven life of greater meaning and purpose.

This webinar will take place on Zoom on November 3rd at 1 PM

Please Note: This webinar will be recorded, and copies of the slides and a video of the presentation will be emailed out to participants.
