CancerAid Coach  Program

Empowering individuals living with cancer through empathy and technology

  • Health Coach: One-on-one support and personalized education from a trained professional. Your Coach will empower you to take action and make decisions that improve your health, while guiding you every step of the way.
  • Evidence-based resources: Evidence-based techniques that focus on what's important to you. Whether it’s ‘getting more sleep,’ ‘working through uncertainty,’ ‘speaking to doctors,’ or ‘getting back to normality,’ we offer relevant topics with real-world coping strategies. It’s the stuff you won’t find on Google.
  • Support when you need it: An accessible expert that’s in your corner and in your pocket. Available via confidential calls, SMS or email.

CancerAid Caregivers

Supporting them starts with supporting you

  • Health Coach: Cancer care is a shared experience, so share the load with a professional Health Coach. Your coach will prioritize your needs, empowering you to be the best caregiver you can be. Your coach will make sure you maintain your own well-being while supporting your loved one.
  • Evidence-based resources: With reliable, relevant resources readily available, you can research everything from ‘living with uncertainty,’ to ‘managing relationships.’ All content is developed by experts who empathize.
  • Support when you need it: With CancerAid, you’ve got confidential support wherever your smartphone goes.
