In these challenging times, we at NCCS continue to work for you, advocating for and supporting cancer survivors, caregivers, advocates, and providers. We have heard from many survivors about coronavirus, who feel uniquely vulnerable due to their history of cancer treatments. And we have heard from people currently in treatment, who are worried about delays in care and navigating a stressed health care system.
NCCS shared these resources about COVID-19 and its impact for survivors.
We have also asked for survivors’ questions and concerns about COVID-19 so we can get them expert advice. We urge survivors to contact us with any questions or concerns (go to www.canceradvocacy.org/contact) so we can continue to address them with answers from top health care experts.
In response to travel restrictions and public health recommendations around social distancing, we will host our upcoming Cancer Policy Roundtable on March 26 virtually via GoToWebinar, rather than in-person. While we are disappointed to not meet in person, we’re looking forward to the opportunity to host NCCS stakeholders outside the Washington, D.C. area. We will have engaging and informative discussions on coronavirus’ impact on cancer survivors, end-of-life care for cancer patients, cancer rehabilitation, and Medicare payment models for cancer care.
We are grateful to all of our stakeholders for your support for NCCS and our work on behalf of cancer survivors and their families. We will get through these challenging times together.
We can all play a role in keeping each other healthy and safe. The most efficient way to reach NCCS is to complete our contact form at www.canceradvocacy.org/contact.
