The American Cancer Society Can Help

If you have been touched by cancer, your American Cancer Society is here to help. We want to make sure those of you benefitting from CaringBridge also know of the rich resources provided by your American Cancer Society.

For Loved Ones:

If someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, you may find yourself taking on new, unfamiliar responsibilities as you help them through treatment and recovery. Taking care of a person with cancer is an important, and sometimes difficult, job. In this section you'll find information and resources to make it easier. For more information, click here.

Cancer Resources:

Your doctor and health care team are there to help you learn about your cancer, how it should be treated, and what decisions you need to make. But you may also have questions and needs that your doctor and health care team can’t always help you answer. When that happens, the American Cancer Society can help.

Find out how our Cancer Resource Network helps cancer survivors and their families. For more information, click here.

After Treatment:

Once you finish your cancer treatment, you may find you have different needs and interests than when you were first dealing with your diagnosis. Here you can get details about what to expect after treatment, information and support for dealing with lingering side effects, and tips for staying healthy in the long term.
