We have added two new important questions to our COVID FAQ.

Can I receive the COVID-19 vaccine while having BCG treatments? If not, is there a waiting period before I can receive the vaccine?

I heard there is a study underway where BCG is being used to protect against COVID-19. Does that mean that my BCG treatments are protective against COVID?

Please visit our website here (https://bladdercancercanada.org/en/bladder-cancer-covid-19-faq/) to learn more.

If you have any other questions about your bladder cancer diagnosis or treatment and COVID, please feel free to post them in the comments below or send us an email at [email protected].



Nous avons ajouté deux nouvelles questions importantes à notre FAQ COVID.

Est-ce que je peux recevoir le vaccin contre la COVID-19 tout en suivant un traitement au BCG ? Si tel n’est pas le cas, doit-on accorder une période d’attente avant de recevoir le vaccin ?

J’ai entendu qu’une étude dans laquelle le BCG était utilisé pour protéger contre la COVID-19 était en cours. Cela signifie-t-il que mes traitements au BCG me protègent contre la COVID ?

Thanks to BCC volunteer, Gerry Ross, for sharing this timely article that is fitting on many levels. A couple of quotes stood out for us…

"But what we really learn in Groundhog Day is the reason why Bill Murray's character, Phil Connors, changes is because over time he realizes when he is in service to others, the healing process starts. " – Volunteering brings a sense of purpose and fulfilment that might just help chase that “pandemic fatigue” away! Connect with us at 1-866-674-8889 to discuss ways in which you can volunteer with us, and perhaps even start the process of healing yourself.

“Another lesson of Groundhog Day is, we have to be able to control what we can control, and we have to let go of what we have no control over” – A great message about setting realistic expectations of ourselves and a reminder that energy spent on worrying about what we can’t change is counterproductive. Check out our webinar on coping with bladder cancer for more effective ways of dealing with the emotions brought on by the pandemic. https://buff.ly/2YYUxOY

This #WorldCancerDay, we’re encouraging Canadians to reprioritize cancer care during the pandemic. A @survivornet.ca survey shows 44% of patients, pre-diagnosed patients and caregivers are avoiding booking or rescheduling cancelled appointments due to fear of exposure to #COVID19.

Canada’s dedicated healthcare providers have been working hard to maintain vital care services for patients, because cancer didn’t stop when the world did. Don’t wait. Contact your healthcare team and get checked today.

#NewNormalSameCancer

En cette #Journéemondialecontrelecancer, nous invitons les Canadiens à redonner priorité aux soins contre le cancer durant la pandémie. Un sondage de @survivornet_ca montre que 44 % des patients atteints d’un cancer ou en attente d’un diagnostic, ainsi que certains soignants, évitent de prendre rendez-vous ou de replanifier un rendez-vous annulé de crainte d’être exposés à la #COVID19.

Partout au Canada, des professionnels de la santé dévoués travaillent sans relâche afin d’assurer le maintien des soins essentiels pour les patients, parce que le cancer n’a pas cessé de progresser quand le monde s’est arrêté. N’attendez pas. Communiquez avec votre équipe soignante et faites-vous évaluer aujourd’hui.

What does the word “cancer” mean to you?

Whether you are a cancer patient, survivor or caregiver, the word “cancer” will mean something different to you. But on World Cancer Day, we all come together to understand the impact that cancer has on our lives and to raise awareness of this disease. In a recent study of more than 15,000 adults in 20 countries around the world, the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) discovered that over 61% of people indicate that they are or have been affected by cancer or know someone who has or had the disease. Every time someone you know receives a cancer diagnosis, the circle of impact gets larger and larger.

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with bladder cancer and you need support in your journey, we are here to help. Call us at 1-866-674-8889 or send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll be in touch.

Que signifie le mot « cancer » pour vous?

Le mot « cancer » a une signification différente si vous êtes patients, survivants ou proches aidants. Mais, à l'occasion de la journée mondiale contre le cancer, nous nous unissons tous pour mesurer l'impact que le cancer a eu sur nos vies et pour sensibiliser le public à cette maladie. À l'occasion d'une étude récente à laquelle ont participé plus de 15 000 adultes de 20 pays du monde, l'Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) a découvert que plus de 61 % des gens disent être ou avoir été affectés par le cancer ou connaître quelqu'un qui a ou a eu un cancer. Chaque fois qu'une personne que vous connaissez reçoit un diagnostic de cancer, l'impact causé par cette maladie augmente un peu plus.

Si vous ou un être cher avez reçu un diagnostic de cancer de la vessie et que vous avez besoin de soutien dans votre pérégrinât, nous sommes là pour vous aider. Appelez-nous au 1-866-674-8889 ou envoyez-nous un courriel à l’adresse: [email protected] et nous vous contacterons.

We are so humbled by the sheer volume of donations in response to our holiday appeal. In a challenging year when so many charities were facing a decrease in donations, our community rallied together to donate a total of $46,314.

These funds will continue to support our mission to enhance patient support, raise awareness and fund research.

We look forward to sharing more details with you throughout the year about how you have made a significant impact for bladder cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

Because of you, our ‘See Red’ awareness campaign will be seen by more Canadians – which means that more of those diagnosed with bladder cancer will be treated early, resulting in better outcomes and lives saved. Because of you, more research will lead to superior treatments and life-saving procedures. Because of you, more people who are told “you have cancer” may turn those three words into “I’m a survivor.”

On behalf of them, we say thank you.

...

Nous sommes extrêmement touchés par le volume impressionnant de dons que nous avons reçus en réponse à notre campagne de la période des fêtes. En cette année difficile où un si grand nombre d'organisations caritatives a vu la quantité de dons qu'elles ont reçus diminuer, notre communauté s'est mobilisée et un total de 46 086 $ a été recueilli.

Ces fonds nous permettront de continuer à soutenir notre mission afin d'améliorer nos programmes de soutien aux patients, de sensibiliser le public et de financer la recherche.

Nous avons hâte de vous transmettre davantage de précision sur l'incidence considérable que vos dons ont eue pour les patients atteints du cancer de la vessie, les survivants et les aidants.

Grâce à vous, notre campagne de sensibilisation « Vous voyez du rouge » sera vue par un plus grand nombre de Canadiens, ce qui signifie que plus de personnes parmi eux recevront un diagnostic précoce de cancer de la vessie, que ces individus seront par conséquent traités rapidement, ce qui leur permettra d'obtenir un meilleur pronostic et sauvera des vies. Grâce à vous, plus de recherches permettront de découvrir de meilleurs traitements et des procédures salvatrices. Grâce à vous, plus de gens à qui on dira : « vous avez un cancer », pourront transformer ces mots et déclarer : « je suis un survivant. »

En leur nom, nous vous remercions.

The language of bladder cancer and how I’ve come to understand it - Bladder Cancer Canada

In our latest blog article, bladder cancer survivor Stephen Wilson writes about his own experience and how he’s come to better understand this cancer – the 5th most common in Canada.

“I had never heard of bladder cancer before I was diagnosed with it. Which is surprising, considering more than 12 thousand Canadians will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year alone. And 80 thousand are living with the disease right now,” says Stephen.

Stephen talks about the different types of bladder cancers, and differentiates between the stages and grades. If you or a loved one have recently been diagnosed, we hope this information will help you better understand your diagnosis.

Dans notre dernier article de blogue, le survivant du cancer Stephen Wilson nous parle de ce qu'il a vécu et de la façon dont il a fini par mieux comprendre son cancer, le 5e le plus fréquent au Canada. « Je n'avais jamais entendu parler du cancer de la vessie avant d'en recevoir le diagnostic. C'est surprenant si l'on considère que plus de 12 000 Canadiens recevront un diagnostic de cancer de la vessie cette année et que plus de 80 000 personnes vivent à l'heure actuelle avec cette maladie », déclare Stephen. Stephen parle des différents types de cancers de la vessie et de la différence qu'il existe entre différents stades et grades.
