Our Invitation to Medical Professional, Advocates and Non-Profit Organizations:

Please accept our invitation to submit an article for posting in this section of the website.

We are an umbrella organization in that we cover all cancers. We do not try to cover the excellent organ specific or group specific information of other organizations but rather try to fill gaps in educational information.

We focus on helping people understand both their cancer diagnosis and their treatment options.

Personalized Medicine
Recently Diagnosed
Cancer 101
Latina Navigator Training

We also focus on educating cancer patients and their families about research and how that relates to them.

As an Organization we believe and formalize in our Mission Statement that one of our goals is to collaborate with all stakeholders.

We believe that our website will have more depth and breadth if we can showcase the tremendous work that medical professionals, other non-profits and advocates across the country are engaged in.
