Online Cancer Resources
In this day and age, the internet has become a way people get information as well as disperse information. While there are many websites on the internet that deal with cancer, not all of them contain correct information. The following websites should contain information that is both correct and helpful as you navigate through a cancer diagnosis.
American Cancer Society (ACS): A voluntary organization that offers a variety of services to patients and their families. It also supports research, provides printed materials and conducts educational programs.
People Living With cancer (PLWC): This is the American Society of Clinical Oncology website for patient education. Links all ASCO information and materials in addition to giving other communication access to people with all kinds of cancer.
Association of Cancer Online Resources: Providers resources for cancer patients wanting to find other with similar cancers. Also has information about most kinds of cancer along with groups.
National Cancer Institute (NCI): An excellent and comprehensive site for people wanting to know more about cancer, including cancer prevention, definitions, clinical trials, recipes and links to cancer centers.
