Cancer Commons Connects

Keeping you updated. Keeping us connected.
"My contact is beyond outstanding. She is, by far, my best, most complete and most responsive source of information on everything related to my disease. None of my clinical doctors matches her in terms of quality, extent and timeliness of information. If every cancer patient had an advocate like her, the disease would be perceived as much more treatable and survivable. She inspires nothing but the utmost respect and credibility."
