COVID-19 evolving health emergency. BCAN urges you to beware of hoaxes! Messages can sometimes look ‘official’ or appear to come from someone you know. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably a scam. These scams don’t work and can keep you from getting the treatment you might really need. Rumors of alternative remedies or prevention are showing up online and in social media like FaceBook or Twitter. Untrue statements may come from well-meaning people who just aren’t qualified to give out medical advice. Some statements are incorrectly attributed to medical experts who did not give that advice! Please verify all online information before passing anything on to family and/or friends. Keep a close eye on information from your local authorities. Reliable websites usually end with “.gov” (for government resources) or “.edu” (for academic resources). Get the latest public health information from CDC: Get the latest research information from NIH: Other good resources include: “Coronavirus: What Cancer Patients Need to Know” Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (…) “Coronavirus: What People with Cancer Should Know” National Cancer Institute ( “Coronavirus 2019: What People With Cancer Need to Know” American Society of Clinical Oncology’s (ASCO) (
