Living with Cancer - A Patient and Family Conference

Free Event - Registration is Now Open! 

CancerCare Manitoba is excited to welcome our patients and their loved ones to a new learning event! On November 25-26, 2022 we will be hosting our first-ever Patient and Family Conference. The conference will be virtual and held online on the user-friendly platform Airmeet. The conference is FREE to patients and their loved ones. Registration is now available.

We are excited to have Catherine Wreford, cancer warrior and recent winner of The Amazing Race Canada, joining us on Friday, November 25 as our Friday keynote speaker. In her keynote presentation “Cancer dancer—how to overcome what you think is impossible,” Catherine will bring her experiences as a performer and stretch expert as well as her personal journey with cancer.

On Saturday, November 26, we will offer presentations covering a variety of topics, including cancer treatments and side-effects, managing pain and medical cannabis, anxiety, identity and many more. We will be hearing from different health care providers, including doctors, nurses, counsellors—and from patients. 

We hope anyone involved in the cancer journey will join us! If you are a person who is interested in learning more about cancer, a patient with questions, or a friend or family member who would like to learn more about supporting someone with cancer, the conference will have useful information for you.

The conference is virtual, so you can join it from anywhere you can connect to the internet using a computer, a smartphone or tablet. Feel free to share the conference information with other people you know who may be interested.

Thank you to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation for their financial support.
