Cancer Commons Connects

Keeping you updated. Keeping us connected.

Throughout my journey, peers have helped me learn about my diagnosis, digest information, and move forward. I was lucky to have a team that knew extending the time of my injection could have a positive impact on my quality of life. However, I also know that there are other women who are having a similar experience and may not have this specific piece knowledge within their team. I hope this finds you! I want to share the tidbits I gain from my experience so that all patients have access to the same knowledge, regardless of where you are being treated.

Through ASK Cancer Commons and other services, our network of oncology experts helps patients and caregivers find their best treatment options. But patients are experts, too. From new treatments to clinical trials, side effects to insurance coverage, patients who have been there before can provide valuable knowledge to one another. We want to make sure these insights aren't lost.

That is why we are excited to announce the launch of our new #PatientInsights social media campaign. By using the hashtag #PatientInsights on Twitter and other platforms, patients and caregivers can share and learn from each other. Click here to learn more about the campaign and see how you can participate. We look forward to reading your insights!
This Month's Stats: Since our last update, we have connected with 123 patients and caregivers through our ASK Cancer Commons service. So far this year, we've helped a total of 209 patients and caregivers. If you have any questions about your or a loved one’s cancer treatment, ASK Cancer Commons today.
