OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE

Updated November 23, 2020

FREE AT HOME NEW RAPID COVID-19 SALIVA TEST KITS APPROVED BY FDA

In response to the out-of-control COVID-19 pandemic, Prostate Cancer Resource in partnership with Yale School of Public Health is planning to offer free at new home rapid saliva-based-self collection test kits to medically fragile elderly cancer patients, with multiple pre-existing health conditions that could exacerbate COVID-19 worst effects.

This is a new and painless alternative test compared to the other option of getting a swab struck up your nose, which is a less than a pleasant experience. The contactless test require putting your saliva into a tube, then mix the agent to activate the test. You put the tube into a provided envelope for overnight shipping to the laboratory. The results are sent by way of a text message or email. 

The advantages of the rapid COVID-19 saliva tests are high-risk cancer patients do not have to visit an in-person test site for the invasive nasal swab test or leaving the safety of their homes and risk exposure to the contagious virus.

Prostate Cancer Resource will be seeking financial help from the Federal HEROES Act pending in Congress, to fund the free new rapid COVID-19 Saliva Test kits program, to limit the spread of the virus and hospitalizations. According to Dr. Reingold, we are in the grips of a third COVID-19 wave for the winter, if hospitalization rate goes up, we would lose the fight against COVID-19.

The new rapid COVID-19 saliva test kits are provided by third parties and not by Prostate Cancer Resource. The offer is subject to change and may have restrictions. For more information, please call our center (415) 994-7435.

COVID-19 HUNGER RELIEF FREE FOOD DISTRIBUTION PILOT PROGRAM

The unprecedented pandemic has increase demand for nutritious meals by our local cancer patients facing economical hardship and experiencing hunger. Prostate Cancer Resource recognizes the impact our senior citizens are facing due to COVID-19. In response to the disease, we are proud to announce the expansion of its free COVID-19 Hunger Relief Free Medical Food Pilot Program, which started five months ago to prevent hunger and malnutrition.

The free medical food distribution service is a lifeline for our elderly and less fortunate who are "often" invisible; living on the margin; "embarrassed" to go to the local food bank; "struggling" to put food on the table and make monthly rent payment.

Our agency projects the number of local cancer patients and survivors facing hunger and malnutrition in the coming 12 months will rise above 10,000. The situation is especially critical to patients with life threatening health issues. Prostate Cancer Resource will continue to provide this essential service for the long-term as the nation recover from the impact of the pandemic.

We are grateful for the generous funding from the Federal CARES Act to support our essential services during the crisis. The CARES Act funding for the COVID-19 Hunger Relief Free Medical Food program ends on December 30, 2020. Prostate Cancer Resource is committed to doing everything possible to continue providing emergency nutritious food to fight hunger in our community.
