Help save lives this holiday season
Healthy habits for families
It’s never too early to teach your kids about healthy lifestyle choices and the importance of knowing what is normal for their body. As a parent or caregiver, there’s a lot you can do to help them be active, eat well and be safe in the sun. You can also find out about risk factors and environmental exposures that may harm young children. After all, we already know that about half of all cancers can be prevented through healthy living and policies that protect the health of Canadians. Healthy habits now can help your children reduce their risk of cancer later in life.
Being smoke-free and protecting your family from second-hand smoke is one of the most important ways to keep your kids healthy.
My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
Support from someone who has ‘been there’
The Canadian Cancer Society’s peer support program is a telephone support service that matches cancer patients and their caregivers with specially trained volunteers.
