Welcome to Ocumel Canada! We hope you find helpful support and information here about ocular melanoma.
This rare cancer is a challenge in so many ways. The small number of diagnoses in Canada does make it difficult for the mainstream Cancer Agencies to provide adequate services. In some provinces and territories, there are no services at all. Our goal is to help individuals affected by the disease in many ways, and, longer term, help Cancer Agencies to improve services to us.
A warm thank you to Save Your Skin Foundation for being our best friend and hosting this space. Staff are already knowledgeable and skilled in providing help to Canadians diagnosed with cutaneous melanoma and their experiences in building a powerful support group will help us get off the ground quickly. Have a good look around the website and see if you find what you need. We have created the following pages to provide up-to-date links and resources:
Ocumel Canada – About Ocular Melanoma
Ocumel Canada – Helpful Links
Ocumel Canada – Resources and Support
Ocumel Canada – 2018/2019 Strategic Plan
We have also just published a recording of our webinar February 15, 2019: Ocular Melanoma – Innovative Treatments and Beyond
We hope that information and support will flow in two directions. If you find what you were looking for, or even if you don’t, please engage with us so we know how to constantly improve our efforts.
