We recently announced the launch of the Cedars Covid-19 Humanitarian Fund for Pediatric and Adult Cancer Patients and their families, aligned with the Wilfrid Howick Humanitarian Fund and administered through Cedars CanSupport throughout the MUHC. If you missed that message, through this fund, the Cedars Cancer Foundation at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) will continue to provide assistance and resources for cancer patients, and their families, in financial need, in an effort to alleviate the negative impact of financial hardship, reducing the stress associated with life’s basic necessities such as shelter, groceries, utilities, and transportation costs. The fund allows Cedars to help those most in need. Donors to this fund offer a tangible outreach to our patients when they are at their most vulnerable. Thank you for supporting this important patient community.

Covidtrials.ca is the first website in Canada that’s designed as a hub to match patients with COVID-19 clinical trials. It’s an innovation that should help researchers in Canada connect with the participants they need and accelerate their urgent, important work to lead us to a viable treatment or vaccine for this disease.
