Cancer Won’t Wait And Neither Should You
Resume Screening and Treatment for Cancer

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) are teaming up with leading health organizations across the country to endorse the safe resumption of cancer screening and treatment during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

A coalition of 76 organizations have signed a letter to the public about the significant threat cancer poses to people’s health. The letter examines distressing trends showing a significant drop-off in recommended cancer screening and treatment during COVID-19 compared to pre-pandemic levels.

Cancer screening and treatment saves lives. Oncology experts agree that people should not delay any necessary prevention or care.
