If you or someone you love has been touched by breast cancer, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to support anyone affected by breast cancer. Most of our programs and services are free and you don’t need to be a member to sign up.
We care because we’ve been there. Our founders walked in the shoes of the newly diagnosed and keenly understood the stress and the difficulty in learning to cope.
Whatever you’re going through right now, we’re here to help.

One of our volunteers, a graduate student in Dr. Bielajew’s lab at University of Ottawa, is currently recruiting English-speaking Chinese and Caucasian women residing in Canada who are between the ages of 30-70 with or without a previous diagnosis of breast cancer. They will help in a study that investigates the cultural differences between women breast cancer survivors.
Participation in this study involves two steps: 1) providing saliva samples over two consecutive days, and 2) coming to the laboratory at the University of Ottawa to complete a brief psychological experiment. Participants will also be asked to complete a set of questionnaires (between 90 and 120 minutes for the lab session). You will receive $50 as compensation for any travel costs incurred. Selection for participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Cynthia Wan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-562-5800 ext. 3892 for the complete eligibility criteria.
