Cedars CanSupport provides free, humanitarian support to cancer patients and their families at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). We are committed to offering compassionate care and understanding and to enrich the lives of those in need from their time of diagnosis and treatment, through post-treatment, and when necessary end of life. With a professional staff and a dedicated corps of trained and supervised volunteers, many of them former cancer patients, Cedars CanSupport strives to reach out to every newly diagnosed patient at the MUHC.
Cedars CanSupport operates in accordance with the highest standards in all relationships with patients, families, health team members, hospital administration and employees. It fosters a climate which encourages support, respect and recognition of its staff and volunteers. Cedars CanSupport is committed to good governance, confidentiality and discretion of the patient and family.
