Our website was created in order to assist patients and their families in accessing current cancer treatment information to ensure that they receive high quality treatment and gain access to the newest cancer drugs/treatment strategies through the clinical trials process. CancerConsultants.com is an independent and comprehensive source of cancer treatment information provided exclusively for patients and their families.
We have elected to maintain our focus on helping patients learn about their treatment options and promote access to clinical studies and specific cancer services through our personal consultations. Optimal delivery of cancer care, however, relies on many other factors including financial and legal support, patient advocacy, and other services. Based on our editors’ review, we recommend the following services to meet these special needs of patients and their families.
