Cancer Resource Network: Help for Your Patients

Cancer patients have lots of questions. You provide treatment and answers to medical questions, while we can provide practical support such as rides to treatment, free lodging, wigs, low-literacy materials, classes and retreats, and an online support group, all things that can substantially improve the quality of life for your patients and their families.

Our toll-free hotline - 1.800.227.2345 - provides cancer support for patients and caregivers 24/7, 365 days a year. 

Through our Cancer Resource Network, which encompasses a huge database of local support groups and services, our well respected Web site, www.cancer.org, and a free information hotline manned around the clock by cancer information experts, we can help patients find clinical trials, answers to their financial and insurance-related questions, and put them in touch with local support groups.
