Cancer treatment with Immunotherapies: video

Over the past decade, immunotherapies have revolutionized the way we treat cancer. This next generation of new cancer treatments is able to harness the body’s own defense mechanisms to attack cancer cells and halt tumor growth.

On the occasion of Cancer Immunotherapy Month, June, 2021, C.A.R.P Chief Policy Officer, Bill VanGorder welcomed Dr. Paul Wheatley-Price (Medical Oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital), Kathy Barnard (CEO of Save Your Skin Foundation), and Stephanie Michaud (President and CEO of BioCanRx) for a closer look at these pioneering new treatments and the promise they hold in helping older Canadians in the fight against cancer.

This event was supported by funding from Merck Canada
