Support and Research




If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, you may feel that you've entered a whole new world of confusing language about disease types, disease states/stages, treatment options and other information. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right information or support you need to understand and cope with the situation.

Experts in the cancer community have teamed up to bring you the latest information on new cancer discoveries — from diagnosis and treatment to support and education. Hundreds of organizations offer help to those with cancer. Some of these organizations are for people with any type of cancer, while others may concentrate on a particular type of cancer.

To assist you in your search, we've compiled a list of links to some of the cancer patient groups that support and educate people with cancer:
