The coronavirus pandemic has touched all aspects of American life, from education and employment to travel, hobbies and health care. For people with or at high risk of cancer, there are unique challenges. In additional to financial and familial stress, medical appointments have gone virtual, screenings and surgeries cancelled or rescheduled, and some treatments moved to the home setting to reduce risk for people with compromised immune systems.
Here at FORCE, we understand the struggles of our community and have been working tirelessly to help address those needs. In addition to moving our support and educational programs to virtual formats, we have been very active in advocating for policies that provide relief.
