In order to provide Canadians living with melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers, and ocular melanoma with the most up-to-date information and resources related to COVID-19, we have partnered with a group of Canadian patient support organizations to create the  COVID-19 Cancer Patient Support Hub, an initiative of All.Can Canada, founded by Save Your Skin Foundation.  If you need personal assistance accessing mental health support, informational resources, food delivery, medication delivery or travel, please contact the COVID-19 Oncology Resources Task Force at info@covid19oncologyresources.ca

Additional Resources

To help you and communities everywhere, Pulse Infoframe has launched their healthie™ COVID-19 Stress Monitor, which provides people with a way to communicate their concerns caused by social isolation and quarantine.

The healthie™ Stress Monitor is a short “check-in” assessment with initial screening questions. Each participant will receive a summary result at the end of the survey. Based on your initial assessment score, you may be invited to participate in a full longitudinal impact study.

Let your voice be heard and help inform public policies. Together, we’re not only stronger—we’re also louder.  Click here to get started:   healthie™ COVID-19 Stress Monitor
