About OncoLink

Our Mission

OncoLink® was the first cancer information website on the Internet, started in 1994, and remains one of the largest. This award-winning site is maintained by a group of oncology healthcare professionals who understand the needs of patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals. OncoLink® content is continually updated and ranges from treatment and disease information for a newly diagnosed patient, support through the side effects of treatment, and into survivorship.

OncoLink® provides tools and educational materials to support the practice of busy practitioners, including on treatment education, psychosocial support, and survivorship care plans. These create a one-stop-shop for patient education, enabling more impactful patient interactions, and improving patient-provider communication and satisfaction. In addition, these tools can enable practices to meet regulatory requirements. Our content is available for syndication and co-branding to meet your patient education needs.

Our primary goal is to support patients, caregivers, and practitioners through education. This can empower patients to make educated treatment decisions, be active participants in their care, and be their own advocates. We provide up-to-date cancer information, free of charge. We hope our passion for this goal shows in the resources you find on OncoLink®.
