Overwhelmed by a cancer diagnosis, a recurrence, or life after treatment? Support is just ahead. Take our short survey to help point you in the right direction.

Support is so vital and one component, out of many, that helps me cope.

Diagnosed with cancer

If you or a loved one is affected by cancer, it is natural to feel overwhelmed. There is a lot to learn as you ask questions, seek information, and make treatment decisions. It can be hard to know where to start. So, we’ve introduced a way for you to easily access cancer resources tailored to your needs and questions, anytime, anywhere.

Keep reading to learn about Launchpad. This 4-question survey allows you to create a dashboard with personalized resources. You'll find guides, videos, and tips — all designed to help you find support and regain control, wherever you are in your cancer experience.


What is Launchpad?

Launchpad is a simple, 4-question survey you can take right from your phone, computer, or tablet. The survey takes just a few minutes to complete. You can skip questions, too. However, the more questions you answer, the more tailored your resources will be.

After you complete the survey, you will arrive at your personalized dashboard. Based on your survey responses, you will find a collection of resources to help you navigate a specific stage of your (or your loved one’s) journey:

  • A new cancer diagnosis
  • Cancer treatment
  • Cancer survivorship
  • A cancer recurrence
Where can I find Launchpad?

You will find Launchpad at the top of our homepage and on several other pages throughout our website. Look for the question “Are you seeking help for yourself or a loved one?” Choose Myself or For a Loved One to get started.

Can I update my preferences as things change?

  • Begin receiving cancer treatment
  • Complete cancer treatment
  • Experience a cancer recurrence
  • Face a new cancer diagnosis
