Creating Cancer Survivors

A diagnosis of cancer impacts more than your body; it affects your emotions and spirit as well. Going online may be a first step in making care decisions for yourself or someone you love. You want solid information, and you want assurance that you’ll get the very best care possible.

That’s what we want, too — to give you information you can understand and to provide you with the most competent, compassionate care available. We’ll be with you every step of the way, from diagnostic testing, through treatment, and to rehabilitation, support and education.

Clinical Trials in Cancer

Clinical trials are research studies involving people. All of today’s standard cancer treatments are a result of clinical trials completed many years ago. More than 25,000 cancer patients enroll each year in clinical trials through the National Cancer Institute, and many more are enrolled in clinical trials sponsored by other groups.
