Terry Willis, a Victoria man of 50 with a rare cancer, denied treatment because of where he lives, is now a national headline. Willis was told that his oncologist would not start chemotherapy while he’s living in supportive housing, because his compromised immune system would put him at high risk of infection. While Island Health and the B.C. Cancer Agency have since determined that he can receive treatment while living in his housing, Willis’s story draws attention to the thousands more in our city who sleep on couches and in cars, in overcrowded dwellings or housing where their access to health care is limited or restricted.
