THE EVIDENCE IS IN :
Health Charities need
your help to help save lives.
HealthPartners has just released the results of a national survey showing that for millions of Canadians impacted by chronic disease and their caregivers the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic could be disastrous unless we support Canada’s health charities today!
COVID has meant interrupted or delayed treatments, cancelled surgeries, missed diagnoses and increased numbers of amputations, heart attacks, strokes and more for Canadians impacted by Cystic Fibrosis, Cancer, Diabetes, Colitis, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, heart disease and other serious diseases. The pandemic has also further isolated and stressed devoted caregivers desperately trying to support their loved ones.
With Canada’s primary health care network laser-focused on COVID-19, Canada’s leading Health Charities are providing essential support services to countless Canadians.
And yet Health Charities are having to do more with less, for the pandemic has decreased their funding even as it has increased the demand for their services.
of Canadians are likely to be directly affected by one or more chronic disease over the course of their lifetime, either impacted with a chronic illness themselves or as a caregiver to a parent, child, sibling or spouse.
of Canadians are more concerned about the long health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic than they are about a lack of medical equipment (71%) or hospital beds (72%) to deal with the outbreak.
of those with a chronic disease/major illness say they are currently relying on support services – like those provided by health charities – that they did not use prior to the pandemic.
Canada’s Health Charities need your help to continue to offer critically important health services to Canadians in need.
