Therefore, fighting against cancer during disastrous time require out of box creative and real time interventions. During covid-19 pandemic, healthcare systems all over the globe suffer enormous pressure and stretched beyond their capacity. Several cancer care services were closed and almost all planned procedures were either postponed or cancelled some of which were most needed and had a long-lasting impacts on cancer patients’ management.
