Cancer Can’t Wait

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, many healthcare services across Canada were shuttered to contain the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, that included cancer care. Appointments stopped, clinics were closed, and cancer patients were forced to wait out the lockdowns while their care was paused. But Cancer Can’t Wait, and it didn’t.

What is Cancer Can’t Wait?

Cancer Can’t Wait is an initiative by the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network that brings issues concerning cancer care to everyone from the general public to the cancer community to elected officials. Our goal is to improve the care that has been impacted by the pandemic and expand it so that cancer patients don’t have to wait for diagnosis and treatment to catch up.
