Our mission is to provide a support centre where we can care for each other as we live with cancer.

Established in 1997, as a drop in centre, in the comfort of a home like atmosphere, Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre is committed to providing community support for people diagnosed with cancer and their families through individual and group support, information, a resource centre, wellness programs and an ongoing lecture and discussion series.  Hearth Place is a support centre where cancer patients and their families can come and share their experiences, find resources and discover new ways to care for themselves and each other.

Caregiver support, grief support and programs for children and teens are available as Hearth Place recognizes the impact cancer has on the extended family and friends. Hearth Place also offers Pediatric Cancer Family support with programs for children and teens with cancer, their siblings, a monthly family support group, fun days, and couples support.

Hearth Place operates without any public funding using private donations and various fundraising events to fund our operations.  Did you know you could donate to Hearth Place securely by clicking the “Donate” button to your right? The process is simple, fast, secure and convenient. Your donation goes to work immediately helping out our community. Try it out. Giving doesn’t get any easier than this!



Hope, Encouragement, Acceptance, Reassurance, Trust, and Help

The Somcan Foundation back in November of 2015 organized an online auction to help support the needs of The Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre in our community.

With your support, we raised $7000.00 to this very deserving centre that does so much for so many people coping with cancer.

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!  This wouldn't have been possible without your generous donations and involvement in our auction.


Thank you!

Your support was greatly appreciated
