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.
As you cope with cancer and cancer treatment, you need to have honest, open discussions with your doctor. You should feel comfortable asking any question no matter how small it might seem. Nurses, social workers, and other members of the treatment team may also be able to answer many of your questions.
What risks or side effects are there with the treatments you suggest?
What are the chances my cancer will come back with these treatment plans?
What should I do to be ready for treatment?
What’s my outlook?
Along with these examples, be sure to write down some of your own. For instance, you might want to know more about recovery times so that you can plan your work schedule. Or you may want to ask about second opinions or about clinical trials.
