In order to provide Canadians living with melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers with the most up-to-date information and resources related to COVID-19, we have created this Information Hub.
Check out the below resources designed for melanoma and skin cancer patients, caregivers and their families. These resources are continually being updated as new information becomes available.
If you need personal assistance accessing mental health support, informational resources, food delivery, medication delivery or travel, please visit the COVID-19 Cancer Patient Support Hub.
Our COVID-19 Information Hub for melanoma and skin cancer patients contains information and resources . If you need to talk to someone for immediate support, call 1-833-456-4566 toll free (in QC: 1-866-277-3553) 24/7 or visit www.crisisservicescanada.ca
