The constant news about Coronavirus (Covid-19) can be worrying. People with cancer and their families might feel especially worried about the virus, as cancer and its treatment can lower your ability to fight infection.

More information on Coronavirus (Covid-19) and its impact on cancer patients can be found on Cancer Research Coronavirus Page.

You can access peer support options on the Cancer Research Coping Emotionally page.

You can chat to others in your cancer community on the Cancer Research Cancer Chat Forum.
