The Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre is solely funded by the generosity of the community it serves. Please consider making a gift today to help friends, family and neighbours in North Simcoe who are living with cancer.

Upcoming Events

There's always something happening in and around the GBCSC.

The goal of this program is to provide a combination of education, peer support and hands-on activities to assist in reflecting on the cancer treatment journey as well as looking ahead at the next chapter in your life.

It's a "daycation"! A day of pampering and relaxation to help chase the winter blues aways. Reiki, massage, reflexology, facials, hand massage and lunch! Book in advance through the Centre to reserve your spa treatments.

A new once-per-month program for men living with cancer to get together for coffee and chat. This program is facilitated by Brian Lovelady and held at the Centre.

The Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre is in the third year of a 3-year grant from the Trillium Foundation. Ontario Trillium Foundation logo
