The Robert Pope Foundation’s support for cancer patients has included a variety of initiatives, including:
- Well-Being Workshops for Cancer Patients – Program funding was provided to Halifax’s Healing and Cancer Foundation to provide mindfulness workshops in various communities to help cancer patients benefit from simple and effective methods that improve health and well-being. http://www.healingandcancer.org/
- Reaching Out to Those with Cancer – For 7 years the Foundation, in partnership with nursing professionals, presented cancer patients entering Halifax’s QEII Hospital with a red rose and sensitively versed card, expressing care and courage for the treatment program these newly admitted cancer patients were about to journey on.
- Coloring Books for Young Cancer Patients – Designed by artist Tom Forrestall, these children’s coloring books were provided by the Foundation to Halifax’s IWK Hospital for Children for the recreational enjoyment of young cancer patients.
