Welcome to Ocumel Canada
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.
In 2020, Ocumel Canada surveyed Health Care Providers to assess the services currently provided by centres working in the ocular melanoma treatment landscape. We are now working with multiple OM Patient Care Providers across the country to address gaps in the system and advocate for standardized care and improved access to treatment and clinical trials in Canada.
A warm thank you to Save Your Skin Foundation for 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 are our foundation.
