Cancer’s not fair. But accessing treatment should be.

Canada’s Western provinces treat take-home cancer drugs and hospital-administered cancer drugs equally, irrespective of the patient’s cancer type, age, or income. Patients receive their treatment when they need it and without personal cost.
The CanCertainty Coalition is the united voice of 35 Canadian patient groups, cancer health charities and caregiver organizations working with oncologists and cancer care professionals to improve the affordability and accessibility of cancer treatment.
