Survivorship is about achieving quality of life on a daily basis.

Support resources normalize your experience on the journey of survivorship.

Patients with a condition such as metastatic breast cancer tend to be pretty savvy. The risk comes with people that “just Google” for information.

Male breast cancer is an issue but it is ignored as “statistically insignificant”.

Patients need a story they can relate to when they are making treatment decisions.

The Lung Map

The Lung Map is is a public-private concerted effort to run co-ordinated clinical trials across hundreds of hospitals and numerous drug companies and research organizations.

Do we need resources to help the friends and family of newly diagnosed cancer patients know how to react and support them?
