Peer support groups

“Peer support” is a term that is used to refer to support and help received from fellow patients or person with a similar condition. Peer support facilitators in ARC are trained to carry out this facilitation.

The groups provide support to people with all types of cancer and operate on a drop-in basis at any of our centres. No appointment is necessary.
