Join us in celebrating National Cancer Wellness Awareness Day, a special day dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of cancer wellness. This year, our campaign focuses on the power of yoga in supporting individuals living with cancer. We are excited to collaborate with yoga studios across Canada as they hold dedicated classes in honour of cancer wellness.
Through these classes, we aim to spread awareness, highlight the benefits of yoga for cancer patients and their caregivers, and empower individuals to prioritize their well-being. Together, let’s make a difference and raise awareness for cancer wellness across the nation.
WHAT IS CANCER WELLNESS AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
It is a whole-person approach that empowers people living with cancer by addressing their physical, spiritual, emotional, informational, social, systemic and practical needs. This comprehensive approach complements traditional medicine and allows people to live well with cancer.
Cancer Wellness is vital as it empowers individuals by giving them a sense of control and actively involving them in their own care. It encourages them to make informed decisions and take concrete steps to improve their well-being.
WHY HOLD A NATIONAL CANCER WELLNESS AWARENESS DAY ?
National Cancer Wellness Awareness Day is a crucial initiative because it sheds light on the alarming statistic that 1 in 2 Canadians is expected to develop cancer in their lifetime. Many individuals are unaware of the existence and valuable services provided by cancer wellness centres.
