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 you know about the rich resources provided by your American Cancer Society.

For Patients

Find medical information, treatment decision tools, news updates, and support resources. You can also read about survivors’ experiences, find hope, and inspire others. Learn more about cancer here.

You can also find these online communities of support:

WhatNext is an online network developed in part with the American Cancer Society to help cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers gain firsthand insight into living with cancer and connect with others facing a similar diagnosis.

Circle Of Sharing™ crafts tailored information in a Personal Health Record that includes sharing and links to all cancer.org resources.

Cancer Survivors NetworkSM is an online community where those who are touched by cancer can express feelings, share experiences, and support one another.

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 their 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 needs and questions that your doctor and health care team can’t always help you answer. When that happens, the American Cancer Society can help.

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. 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. For more information, click here.
