September is Pain Awareness Month. One in five Canadians live with chronic pain, and are twice as likely to be diagnosed with anxiety and depression. All people with pain in Canada, no matter who they are or where they live, should have equitable access to timely and evidence-based care and support. CBCN has posted many articles and patient stories on pain management, complementary therapies, tips and advice, and firsthand stories about experiencing pain as a breast cancer patient.
Mission The Canadian Breast Cancer Network (CBCN) is Canada's leading patient-directed organization of individuals concerned about breast cancer. CBCN strives to voice the views and concerns of breast cancer patients through education, advocacy activities, and the promotion of information sharing.
