Our transportation program helps you get to your cancer related appointments. We offer a door-to-door service for clients who need rides through our volunteer driver program. For the safety of our clients, our volunteer drivers are required to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19. For clients who choose to drive themselves (or family/friend as driver), we will reimburse the client mileage to and from appointments.
SCCR has partnered with several places to stay during treatment away from home. We can assist you with the cost if you require accommodation.

Our Lymphedema support program offers financial assistance to help with the costs of Lymphedema massage through a certified therapist or the purchase of Lymphedema garments.
Wigs and Head Coverings
We have a selection of wigs and head coverings that we lend to clients who require them. Hope Haven is a room that provides comfort and privacy while trying on and choosing a wig or head covering that feels right.
Call us at 204-822-9541 to arrange an appointment for a fitting.
Skin Screening Clinics
Our skin screening clinics are offered in partnership with a dermatologist to check for possible skin cancer. These clinics are offered at no cost and are open to the public.
Due to Covid, this clinic is on hold.
Radon Awareness and Testing
Radon is a colourless, odorless, radioactive gas that is found naturally in the environment and can increase your risk of lung cancer. Radon can enter your home through cracks or gaps in walls or the foundation. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, 24% of homes in Manitoba have radon gas levels higher than Health Canada Standards. We have partnered with local plumbers who can test your home for radon. If your home is tested, we can reimburse the lab testing fees.
SCCR aims to provide wellness programs to help individuals improve mental, emotional and physical health during and after treatment. Our programs change to meet the needs of the communities we serve.
Our wellness programs include:
Giving each individual that attends the tools they need to look and feel their very best. We have partnered with a local salon to offer this service to our clients.
Giving individuals the opportunity to use art as a form of expressing themselves through their cancer journey. We have partnered with Pembina Hills Arts Council and local therapists to provide a safe and rewarding experience.
Giving our clients options of regaining strength in their muscles and in their minds after treatment with our partnership with yoga and health facilities in the areas we service. When clients chose their own fitness program we can reimburse a portion of those costs.Learn More
