For the first time ever, the Congress will be "Patients Included". We are pleased to welcome the following advocates:

  • Victoria Forster @vickyyyf, @cancersurvSM
  • Margaret Ng: Over 10 years experience working in workplace wellness and health promotion my mission is to support health, healing, and well-being so others can thrive in life.
  • Karen Ladner Haas @caringcancermom
  • Lorna Larsen @TeamShan: I am honoured to receive a 2019 IPOS/CAPO World Congress of Psycho-Oncology patient and family advocate scholarship. I look forward to participating in the Congress, sharing my daughter Shanna's Story and my efforts to make a positive difference in the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer journey. Shanna (Shan) lost her life to breast cancer at the age of twenty-four. As part of my grief process, I have advocated strongly to help improve AYA cancer outcomes across the continuum from awareness to palliative care. All in Shan's memory!
