Welcome to ELLICSR: Health, Wellness, and Cancer Survivorship Centre

In-person Patient Education Classes Cancelled
In-person patient education classes at Princess Margaret are not being offered at this time. Most classes are available online for patients and family. Having classes online means you do not have to come to the Hospital just to attend a class. Visit the Cancer Health Information page to learn about classes and other resources about cancer.

ELLICSR is a health, wellness and survivorship centre. A cancer survivor is defined to be anyone who is touched by cancer, including patients, families, friends, and caregivers. We offer all cancer survivors the opportunity to:

  • Find information on health and wellness
  • Meet other survivors
  • Participate in a class or program
  • Sit and relax before and after appointments

Through research, we strive to better understand the cancer and survivorship experience in order to improve it. We aim to close the gap between what we already know works and what survivors do to benefit their own health and wellness.

ELLICSR inspires people to think differently, and to look for fresh ideas on how to improve the health and quality of life of cancer survivors.
