As reports of the first cases of COVID-19 in Maine began hitting the newsfeed, Angela Fochesato, Healthy Acadia’s Cancer Patient Navigator, became increasingly concerned for the health of her cancer patients. Patients with cancer may be immune-compromised - depending on the type of cancer they have, their age, the type of treatment they are receiving, and other co-existing health conditions - putting them at a higher risk of contracting infections, including COVID-19. The risk of being immune-compromised is typically highest during active cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy.
