Links & Resources

 

 

 

Following are a number of links and resources that we find very valuable:
NEW! Corporate Angels Network
www.corpangelnetwork.org
If you or someone you know needs to fly to a cancer treatment facility, this tip is for you. The Corporate Angels Network provides free transportation for cancer patients of all ages to and from cancer treatment facilities. They do this by using otherwise empty seats on corporate aircraft.

"Corporate Angel Network is the only charitable organization in the USA whose sole mission is to ease the emotional stress, physical discomfort and financial burden of travel for cancer patients by arranging free flights to treatment centers, using the empty seats on corporate aircraft flying on routine business.... Thanks to the generous cooperation of 500 of America’s top corporations, including 56 of the top 100 in the Fortune 500, Corporate Angel Network has coordinated more than 17,000 flights since it’s founding in 1981."
The Breast Care Site
www.thebreastcaresite.com
This is one of the best sites we have found. They seek and post great, informational articles on a huge variety of subjects from before and after surgery to clinical trials... Click on the Search button and try "ask the expert" to find answers to the hardest questions.
Cancer Care, Inc. www.cancercare.org This website supports the caregivers offering counseling, financial and insurance information and education. This company is a non-profit organization. They have a toll free number 800-813-4673.
FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered www.facingourrisk.org In the earliest stages of a cancer diagnosis people always ask, "Where do we start?" This website is a GREAT place to turn for all kinds of resources, in fact if you select the Resource Guide from the menu on the right of the home page it will take you to a comprehensive outline of who's, where's and how's. We especially like the information on how to evaluate the source of the information you are getting on the web and the section on how to look at genetic testing. In the Reciprocal Links section of the site you can link to 150 other sites.

MD Anderson Cancer Center
mdanderson.com
This site is great for those who like the one on one communication with other cancer patients. They try to match the cancer patient or caregiver who has the same diagnosis and treatment. They have a telephone support line, quarterly newsletter, and community outreach groups.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center - About Herbs section www.mskcc.org The About Herbs section of the Sloan-Kettering website provides objective information for oncologists and healthcare professionals, including a clinical summary for each agent and details about constituents, adverse effects, interactions, and potential benefits or problems. Evaluations of alternative or unproved cancer therapies also are given. Our Integrative Medicine Service staff, led by an oncology-trained pharmacist and botanicals expert, manages this web site, which is continually updated as new information becomes available.

A consumer version of each monograph also is available to help you deal with the often confusing claims made for over-the-counter products and regimens. It is important to ask your doctor or another qualified professional about possible interactions with your specific medications before taking any supplements. Their Additional Resources list provides further information.
