Frankly Speaking About Cancer is the Cancer Support Community’s landmark cancer education series, providing sound medical and psychological information for cancer patients and their loved ones.
Easy to Understand Information about Cancer
Through a variety of means (print, online and in-person programs) we present information about cancer in a conversational way. Having trusted, easy to understand information that demystifies life with cancer can help you and your loved ones feel better about the choices you make about managing your cancer care.
We want to provide you with information that helps you talk with your doctor and other members of your health care team so you can work together to manage your care. Remember, you may have cancer but cancer doesn’t have you.
