Description

CancerCare is offering a free, 6-week telephone support group for those impacted by COVID-19 who have been diagnosed with cancer and are receiving a form of active treatment or have completed treatment within the past 3 months. Treatment may consist of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, hormonal treatments and/or advanced cancer treatment.
