Re-Shaping our Cancer Stories Application Form

A cancer diagnosis may change the trajectory of our lives. Our life story may need reshaping; grief and loss need acknowledging.

This innovative program will give opportunities to work deeply with questions of identity and the “current now” in the midst of a caring community.

Through live, online gatherings, video segments, and supporting materials, we will integrate the natural world, simple art-making, yoga, sound, and discussion circles as we travel through our stories to chart a fresh course.

Simply come with an open heart and a playful spirit. Most of the materials you will need will be mailed to you.

This program is for those living with cancer.

This initiative is supported by a generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

We will mail you a welcome package so please be specific and double check it's correct.

After 4 months of listening, creativity, small group conversations and A LOT OF COMMUNITY SUPPORT, the decision has been made. Within the next few months, Abbey Retreat Centre (ARC) will officially change our name to Brooksong Retreat and Cancer Support Centre.

Your donation is DOUBLED for the month December!

All donations up to a total $25,000 will be matched by a generous donor!
