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.
This site 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
If you don’t find the information you are looking for, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Patient Support Liaison Kathy Barnard is also available to answer any questions at email@example.com.
