Information and cancer resources
The American Cancer Society publishes all the information we provide, and their help is free. To learn more about their programs and services, such as clinical trial matching, upcoming events and other information, call (800) 227-2345 for additional information or visit their website at www.cancer.org.
Transportation help for cancer patients
Every day, thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. If finding a ride is a problem for you, we may be able to help.
Our Road To Recovery® program provides free rides to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars, so patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.
Breast cancer support
Our Reach To Recovery® program lets you talk one-on-one with a trained volunteer about your breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our volunteers are breast cancer survivors, so they know the questions and concerns that come with a diagnosis and offer advice on how to cope throughout the cancer journey.
Interactive online classes
Our I Can Cope® online classes provide a quick and convenient way for patients and caregivers to get the answers they need. Classes are self-paced and topics include information about pain, fatigue, nutrition, communication, intimacy, side effects and more. To register, please visit www.cancer.org/onlineclasses.
Appearance-related effects of cancer treatment
The American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the Personal Beauty Association have partnered together to present Look Good Feel Better® , a free program that teaches active cancer treatment patients ways to help them with appearance-related side effects of breast cancer.
Cancer survivors and caregivers’ online community
The Cancer Survivors Network™ is a free online community created by and for people with cancer and their families. This online community is a welcoming, safe place for people to find hope and inspiration from others who have “been there.” We offer discussion boards, chat rooms and a personal web space to tell your story, blog, post images, exchange private messages with members and much more. To register, please visit the Cancer Survivors Network™ at www.csn.cancer.org/.
