Some of the topics we can assist with include:

Donations, website, or event-related assistance
For medical questions, we encourage you to review our information with your doctor.
It’s important to have honest, open discussions with your cancer team. They want to answer all your questions, so that you can make informed treatment and life decisions. For instance, consider these questions:
What type of follow-up might I need after treatment?
What symptoms should I watch for?
How will we know if the eye cancer has come back? What would my options be if that happens?
Along with these sample questions, be sure to write down some of your own. For example, you might want more information about recovery times so you can plan your work or activity schedule. You might also want to ask about clinical trials for which you may qualify.
Keep in mind that doctors aren’t the only ones who can give you information. Other health care professionals, such as nurses and social workers, may be able to answer some of your questions. You can find out more about speaking with your health care team in The Doctor-Patient Relationship.
