Cancer Resource Specialists

CA resource specialists medium

Cancer patients face many challenges: variable access to care, lack of knowledge of local resources and treatment options, insurance inequities, legal issues such as discrimination in the workplace, and care for loved ones during treatment absences.

The diversity of California’s population makes these issues especially acute. The American Cancer Society’s Stephanie H. Lane Cancer Resource Network offers personalized guidance through this difficult journey.
