To further enhance the support available to people facing cancer, we are joining forces with the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CCSN).

Cancer diagnoses are still on the rise, and this for the vast majority of cancers. But early diagnoses and improved treatments have resulted in a drop in the mortality rate.

“The silver lining in these observations is that a far greater number of people are surviving cancer. This, however, is accompanied by an increased demand for new programs and services to favor the post-cancer reintegration of people who have completed therapy and recovered. We are thus beyond pleased and relieved to be able to count on our new partnership with the Quebec Cancer Foundation. The ability to refer our members to the Info-cancer Hotline equates providing them greater access to information, support, and actual resources”, stated Tiziri Ait Ali, Communications Assistant at the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network.

The CCSN is a national network that strives to connect people with cancer and other interested parties with decision-makers and community partners to foster exchanges and act on recognized best practices in the areas of care, survival and oncology research.

“Together, we can ensure that people with cancer from everywhere in Canada can access yet more services that meet their needs. Through the Info-cancer Hotline, members of the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network can benefit from the expert knowledge of our experienced oncology nurses who will be able to inform and refer them to free services from our nutritionists, psychologists, social workers, and researchers,” emphasized Marco Décelles, General Manager of the Quebec Cancer Foundation.

By standing together in support of greater access to services, we are achieving our common desire, namely to improve the daily well-being of people with cancer and their loved ones.
