Coping with cancer is an immense and complicated burden for cancer patients and their loved ones. The avalanche of information, numbers, forms, procedures, and specialized knowledge can be overwhelming. 

Our new Personal Health Manager Kit is an easy-to-use tool designed to help patients organize and keep track of appointments, medication, test results, insurance, bills, and various other logistical and practical details associated with cancer. The kit's content can be personalized to provide information and resources which will help address the needs of a particular cancer patient or caregiver.
 

How does a patient or caregiver receive a Personal Health Manager?

Patients or caregivers can call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 and talk to a Cancer Information Specialist about the Personal Health Manager.
