Cancer Commons Connects

Cancer Commons has served more than 1,000 patients to date.  The numbers are surging, and have increased 500 percent since January.  The need is so clear.  

Please enjoy this science update.

During the course of four years of cancer treatment, I turned repeatedly to the remarkable online resources of Cancer Commons, and to their impressive contributors, for guidance on different facilities and forms of treatment. The rapid advance of cancer research, and the increasingly rapid movement of research medicine to the clinic, underlines the importance of the timely and reliable communications Cancer Commons encourages and supports.
