We Believe in the Power of Information
Cancer Patient Care understands that a diagnosis and treatment of cancer requires many resources. It is a confusing and anxious time for those diagnosed with cancer and their families and friends.
Finding correct information is critical to patients' understanding of the disease process, treatments available and resources for help. This list of local and national resources will assist you in finding information and reliable resources.
