A New Guide For People with Gynecologic Cancer, Made by People with Gynecologic Cancer

Gynecologic Cancers: Your Journey features information on diagnosis, treatment and resources on living with cancer for people with cervical, endometrial, ovarian, vaginal and vulva cancers. 

Gynecologic Cancers: Your Journey was created in collaboration with gynecologic cancer patient partners and is an example of how BC Cancer is strengthening our patient-centred approach to care. 

In response to patient requests for more comprehensive information on the gynecologic cancer journey, BC Cancer partnered with the Gynecologic Cancer Initiative (GCI)  and a group of 19 patient partners to co-create this new resource.

Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month 2022: A Recap

Gynecologic Cancer Month has been yet another wonderful success. Throughout the month, we raised awareness for gynecologic cancers by amplifying patients’ voices and celebrating those who have made/are making a major impact in gynecologic research and care.  

Although Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month is coming to an end, we hope this does not mean the end of your support for gynecologic cancer patients, survivors, and research. We at the GCI are continuously working towards developing a better future for patients and we hope you will continue to support us along the way.
