Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation
The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is the voice for cancer survivorship in Eastern Ontario. Our mission is to help people living with cancer by providing local residents with increased access to person-centered care through the delivery of the Cancer Coaching Health and Social Care Service, innovative cancer research and a world-class clinical trials program.
We value leadership. We are entrepreneurial, forward-thinking and solution-focused. We constantly seek to improve ourselves, to develop expertise through which we can deliver tangible life-changing results for survivors. We believe that empowering survivors enables them to be leaders in their own way.
We value survivorship. We are respectful, passionate and inspiring. We know that each person defines survivorship in their own way. Therefore, we strive to increase access to personalized treatment and care.
We value partnership. We are open-minded and inclusive. We know that increasing survivorship requires collaboration on a massive scale, so we bring people and organizations together to work towards common goals.
Two decades ago, cancer was a very tough subject to talk about. In fact, most people were afraid to discuss it, and had a hard time coming to terms with the realities of the disease.
Today, we look at cancer in a whole new way. More and more people are surviving the disease, and are living longer.
