“Myeloma affects not only hundreds of patients but thousands of lives in the Ottawa-Outaouais region every year. It is our goal at the CISSS de l’Outaouais to provide the best possible care to all patients with myeloma. Through an interdisciplinary team of dedicated physicians, nurses and allied health workers and through our clinical research unit, we seek to give access to the latest advances in myeloma care.
Our fight extends across city, provincial and cultural boundaries. For decades, our patients have been grateful to benefit from the outstanding expertise and care of The Ottawa Hospital who offer access to stem cell transplantation and other novel therapies for patients of the Outaouais region. This has a tremendous impact for our patients who can access high level care close to home.
Through this unique collaboration and teamwork, we are confident that patients from the Ottawa-Outaouais region continue to receive outstanding care and this is made possible by the incredible advocacy work and support from your group. It is truly heartwarming for me as a physician as well as for patients and families to witness such a strong level of community support.
In the name of all patients, families and health care workers at the CISSS de l’Outaouais, we say thank you.”
