"Even at the first group meeting, the members that were there made me feel very comfortable. Everyone got it."

Ric first came to CancerCare after completing treatment for bladder cancer because he was looking for support and advice from other cancer survivors. He found this in Cancer Care's gay male cancer survivors support group.
