Looking for Advice about Practical Concerns?

On top of treatment concerns, things like transportation, care giving, spirituality and financial concerns can increase the stress and anxiety of cancer treatment. Visit OncoLink's newest section for advice for dealing with common practical concerns!

Is a Clinical Trial Right for Me?

Clinical trials are necessary to advance cancer care, but considering a clinical trial for your treatment can be a little overwhelming - is this the best option for me? Will my insurance pay for the treatment? Will I feel like a guinea pig? OncoLink attempts to answer some of these questions in Clinical Research Trials: The Basics and The Facts About Cancer Research. Looking to find a trial? Visit the OncoLink Clinical Trial Matching Service and our trial specialists can help you find a trial that fits your needs.

Giving Back & Helping Others

Recently, our bloggers have brought attention to ways survivors and their loved ones can help others going through cancer treatment. One way is fundraising, which may sound daunting, but Rodney explains how you can get started. Looking to help an individual? Carolyn provides some tips for helping friends & family experiencing the expense of treatment. Bob's blog has lots of tips for helping others.
