About Us

Wellwood empowers you to live well with cancer.

This is a community-based, non-profit organization which gives you tools to cope with the challenge of living with a diagnosis, providing information, programs and peer support to people who have received a diagnosis of cancer, loved ones, caregivers and healthcare providers. Working with existing community agencies and cancer care providers, Wellwood aims to provide integrative supportive care.

All of our programs are available at no charge.

As a safe, inclusive and accessible centre, volunteers and staff strive to make Wellwood barrier-free for all.  The Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion recently presented Wellwood with our city's first organizational Diversity Champion Award in recognition of this commitment.
