Cancer Support Programs

In addition to providing the physical and tangible necessities of cancer care, we believe in supporting patients and their families in a way that also fosters emotional and mental health.

  • We support the purchase of things like Healing Art Therapy Murals – lighted murals which create a bright and soothing atmosphere for cancer patients during their treatment.
  • We also support the construction and maintenance of therapeutic gardens, like the “Garden of Hope” in the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre and the Western Regional Memorial Health Care Centre in Grand Falls-Windsor.
  • We maintain a well-stocked Toy Chest in the Radiation Therapy Department at the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre for pediatric oncology patients. Radiation treatment can be a traumatic experience for young cancer patients, especially since this therapy can happen every day for an extended period of time. Every young, frightened and anxious cancer patient who undergoes radiation treatment is surprised with a reward when their treatment is complete. Each toy chest is customized by Newfoundland Power to fit the interests and activities that each individual child enjoys.
  • We are generous supporters of The Patient and Family Support Fund. Established by the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation, the fund helps patients who cannot afford the basic necessities such as travel, accommodations, and meals, when receiving their treatment.
