Cancer Sharing Circle Reports
Cancer sharing circles facilitate open discussion about cancer in a safe environment. The objectives of cancer sharing circles are:
- To give community members the opportunity to voice their concerns and share their stories about cancer;
- To enhance community knowledge and awareness of cancer and how it impacts community members; and
- To motivate community members to initiate their own activities to address barriers and gaps they face in cancer care and support.
