Education & Workshops

TOC workshops or 'Twist Shops' provide individuals touched by cancer with an opportunity to share their 'twist on cancer,' (lessons learned, fighting strategies and new perspectives). Facilitators lead groups in meaningful discussions related to the critical importance of psychosocial support, and guide exercises that foster creativity and encourage team building.
