To support people and communities affected by cancer amidst the crisis in Ukraine, Conquer Cancer®, the ASCO Foundation, is funding emergency resources on Cancer.Net, ASCO’s patient information website. 

Cancer.Net has compiled recommendations on managing care during crises, printable wallet-cards for emergency information, an emergency preparation checklist, a list of American Cancer Society call center numbers, and tips for coping with cancer and related symptoms in disaster situations. With support from Conquer Cancer, this information will be translated into Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, and Romanian.  

These educational resources are designed to assist patients and physicians in Ukraine, as well as neighboring countries, to prevent life-threatening disruptions in cancer care.  To learn more about ASCO's response to the war in Ukraine, visit ASCO’s main website
