So what is a CanCan Party?

A CanCan Party educates about ovarian and breast health. We create a space where attendees feel safe about asking questions, while making it a fun experience as they learn!

The workshop is led by a trained health instructor and follows a curriculum in line with the latest scientific and medical knowledge on ovarian and breast cancer. Each workshop also includes an ovarian or breast cancer survivor to share her journey.

Attendees learn about both ovarian and breast cancer, specifically:

  • Signs and symptoms
  • Screening recommendations in line with national guidelines
  • Risk factors
  • Assessing cancer risk with our Family History and Genetic Counseling worksheet
  • Cancer myths
  • Healthy lifestyle choices to help reduce risk

Attendees are empowered to be their own health advocates by:

  • Knowing their bodies
  • Having conversations about their health history with their families and trusted health care professional
  • Sharing this important information with family and friends

We are pleased to present this event in collaboration with the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer.
