These cancer sites may not be news to you but they are to me and I like to share when I find something new and different.
Cancer . com, has a great interactive site. Almost eerily interactive as three speakers chat it up with you and follow you around the site.
You can personalize your homepage according to whether you are recently diagnosed, undergoing treatment or are a caregiver. Each of the hosts will give you their personal story as well.
It’s a very cool and VERY informative site. My only complaint is it took me eight tries to create a password and my own homepage.
Check this out….
My Biopsy. org-information about cancer diagnosis from the College of American Pathologists.
“Each page includes answers to questions about what the disease is, what treatment options are available, questions you should ask your doctors, a definition of key terms, and pictures of a normal tissue as well as one that is diseased.”
An ASCO website, Making a Difference in Cancer Care.
