Over the past couple weeks, especially now that we are on level 4, there has been a real emphasis on looking after those who are immunocompromised as well as the elderly. This includes cancer patients, especially those who are currently undertaking treatment. While there are talks of at home treatments being developed, currently patients will still have to go into clinics for treatments. James talked to the CEO of Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand, Peter Fergusson, about how they are going with reaching patients and what progress is being made to succeed in these new conditions. James also ended up talking to Peter about how non-for-profit organisations are coping, especially ones like LBCNZ where funding has tanked and the pressure to meet demand has increased.
