Knowledge is Power

A diagnosis of cancer or a serious medical condtion can be overwhelming. Finding the right information, at the right time can be difficult.

Too much information may leave you feeling overloaded, stressed and unable to remember what was important.

Too little information can make it difficult for you to manage your condition, affecting your health outcomes and quality of life.

Learning how to communicate what information you need, to the health professionals involved in your care, is important.

Please use the links provided on this page to guide you to sites which can help you find trusted information, when you need it.  Let the information you find assist you in starting conversations with your health care team.

“With communication, comes understanding and clarity. With understanding, fear diminishes. In the absence of fear, hope emerges. And in the presence of hope, anything is possible.” Ellen Stovall, past president, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS).
