Last August, the Quebec Cancer Foundation launched an online directory of resources for the healthcare system and for people affected by cancer and their loved ones. Today, the thousands of resources indexed in this directory are also available in English.
This directory has been compiling oncology resources for over 25 years in order to meet the needs of its clientele 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. With the launch of the new bilingual directory, the English-speaking community of Quebec can also find answers to their needs quickly and easily, anytime, anywhere.
The directory has no less than 9 categories of resources, ranging from complementary therapies, breast and hair prostheses, palliative care, home help, transportation or self-help and support. Whether they are looking for a certified oncology yoga teacher in Val-d'Or or home help in La Tuque, cancer patients and their loved ones will be able to find the contact information of oncology organizations or resource people in the vicinity of their home or treatment site.
The Foundation's experienced oncology documentalists and nurses at the Info-cancer Services are always available to help you with your research at 1-800-363-0063. They also offer confidential answers, advice, listening and reassurance to people with cancer and their loved ones, and it’s all free of charge.
This is one more way in which the Quebec Cancer Foundation confirms its role as a unifying leader, bringing together all the organizations and services that are available to people with cancer in Quebec.
“Last June, we reasserted our commitment to providing greater accessibility to our services in our strategic plan, Being Closer to the People (in French only). With the launch of this online resource directory now available not only in French, but also in English, the Foundation is keeping its promise to be closer to people. Now, every Quebecer affected by cancer, whether directly or indirectly, can find targeted help, regardless of their history, region, age, language or type of cancer.” says Marco Décelles, Director General of the Quebec Cancer Foundation.
This year, 56,800 Quebecers will be diagnosed with cancer. Their needs, particularly as regards information and support, are immense and need be met right away. The Quebec Cancer Foundation is well aware of this and is taking concrete action by developing new services that are increasingly accessible to as many Quebecers as possible.
