Thamesview FHT has partnered with Windsor Regional Hospital to provide support programs for cancer patients and their family and friends within the Chatham area. “Sexuality and Cancer” and “A Life After Cancer Educational Series” are also available via video conference using the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN).
Cancer patients often have to leave Chatham-Kent to receive advance treatment, which involves a lot of time, travel and expense. Then they’re also recommended to participate in support programs, which may mean even more travel. With Thamesview FHT offering these programs, patients save time as well as money for gas and parking.
Also open to the public is a monthly peer support group, facilitated by a cancer survivor and offered through a partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society.
