Music: Be Still

This page can help you save some time when searching for information about different types of cancer (described in both normal English and in doctors English), about symptoms, about various treatments and treatment centers, and about some of the research that is currently being done in the field of childhood and adolescent cancer.

If you are part of a new diagnosis, I suggest that you start with "Cancer Resources" (below) in order to decide if you really should be doing any research at all. If you decide to continue, then choose a link such as the "The Cancer FAQ" which is an excellent starting point, or the "OncoLink" site which is a definite "must visit".

All of these resources can lead you to even more resources, so you are almost certain to find the information that you are looking for. There is far too much information to absorb in just one day, so take your time, print and read what you find, then plan for your next search, and do it.

NOTE: If you can't find the information you require by using this page, go to my Information For Caregivers page and learn how to conduct your own custom search of the Web.
