Facing Cancer Together

Group Name: Facing Cancer Together

Description: Facing Cancer Together is designed to offer support with cancer, provide a cancer information network and cancer support resources and tools to help women—and those who care about them—manage the social and emotional effects of cancer. Our website provides an online support group for cancer patients where women, and all those connected to them, can find support with cancer and camaraderie with others on the same journey. Shoppers Drug Mart is the title sponsor of this important first initiative of the Facing Cancer Together program.

Facing Cancer Together is a program of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA) Foundation. In an effort to give back to the community that supports their industry, in 1992 the member companies of the association pledged their commitment to women with cancer and established the CCTFA Foundation to launch the Look Good Feel Better program. Since its inception, the Look Good Feel Better program has helped more than 140,000 women through its signature two-hour cancer workshops, while countless others have been reached through the annual magazine, toll-free information line and comprehensive website. *** Membership is required.

Where: 420 Britannia Road East, Suite 102 | Mississauga, ON L4Z 3L5
