Education

We want to provide you with information that helps you talk with your doctor and other members of your healthcare team so you can work together to manage your care. Remember, you may have cancer, but cancer doesn’t have you.

Easy-to-Understand Information About Cancer

Through a variety of means (print, online and in-person programs), we present information about cancer in a conversational way. Having trusted, easy-to-understand information that removes the mystery from life with cancer can help you and your loved ones feel better about the choices you make in managing your cancer care.

Free Cancer Education Materials and Programs

Best of all, our materials and programs are free to patients and loved ones. Our materials are reviewed by medical experts including oncologists, nurses, social workers, patient advocacy groups and even patients and caregivers. In our books, you will see pictures and read quotes from real people. In our workshops, you will have a chance to ask questions of medical professionals, patients and other experts.
