Living With Cancer Resources for Patients and Families
At UPMC CancerCenter, we urge you to learn as much as you can about your cancer diagnosis.
This knowledge allows you to be an active partner in your treatment and make informed choices about your cancer care.
To help you learn more, we've compiled this list of trusted resources that inform you about living with cancer.
You'll also find out how others are living with cancer. Often, knowing there are others going through the same thing as you are can offer support and hope during cancer treatment.
