Men With Cancer
It is no secret that men are not always attentive as they could be when it comes to looking after their own health and wellbeing. It is like asking for directions…
They often chose to tough it out and struggle rather than admit they have lost their way. At Wellspring Edmonton, men living with cancer are invited to participate in a non-judgmental, pressure-free group where they find strength and power in listening and sharing with peers. The Wellspring Men’s Group provides a safe and supportive space for sharing stories, challenges, goals, and dreams – along with it, and a few laughs of course.
Sharing stories has long been noted as not only a powerful stress reliever but a great way to create a connection. Social connection is important to our health and wellbeing. The benefits of socializing and sharing are considerable and impact each one of us in a variety of ways – both measurable and indescribable.
Participants gather and are free to talk about anything they wish. They may speak or stay silent and simply listen. Everyone finds their own right way to participate.
“Great company, great conversation”.
“We laughed and learned a lot from each other’s experience”.
All male Wellspring Edmonton members, including those living with cancer, family members and significant caregivers are welcome.
Please note, our programs are designed for adults only.
