Even during a pandemic, cancer continues to be a matter of life and death.
Due to COVID-19, many cancer screenings, surgeries, and other treatments have been postponed. A CCS survey showed that 47% of people with cancer reported their cancer care appointments were disrupted, causing additional fear, frustration and anxiety. In fact, we anticipate an overwhelming number of cancer cases diagnosed or treated too late.
