​​​​​​​​Improving Indigenous Cancer Journeys

Cancer and First Nations  

Cancer and First Nations Peoples in B​C: A Community Resource includes FNHA's approach to health and wellness, an overview of cancer incidence and survival rates for First Nations people in BC, information on preventing cancer and cancer-related community resources.

Living with ​C​ancer

Living With Cancer includes culturally appropriate and safe information on patient rights and navigating the cancer journey. The information is told through the stories of Indigenous cancer patients and their families who have gone through a cancer journey.​​

Silent Enemy

Silent Ene​my​ is a 28-page comic book about a father who finds out he has lung cancer and receives treatment for it. 

The story focuses on the themes of hope, humour, family and survival, and compares the path the father travels and the love and support his family give him, to a wilderness walk, during which unexpected challenges come up and are overcome as a family. 

Silent Enemy is most suitable for older youth, adults and families.
