Mark fought his way through a difficult cancer diagnosis and learned some valuable lessons along the way about what patients experience.

The Patient and Family Advisory Council at the Juravinski Cancer Centre has given him a voice to share those lessons learned and improve the care and experience for future patients.

I just have a suggestion, instead of unhealthy snacks given to patients during chemo treatment, why not fruits or vegetables, I'm always offered cookies and sugary snacks.. however during my longer treatments, I will definitely bring my own of course, but those starting out, a crunchy apple would be great.
