At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we know that making a cancer treatment decision can be overwhelming. Along the way, your needs and desires may evolve depending on your current situation. It can help to connect with others fighting the same fight.
Created for and by our patients more than two decades ago, the Cancer Fighters® team has evolved to help in two ways. First, if you are considering treatment at CTCA® and wish to talk with a patient, our Oncology Information Specialists will connect you with a patient who has gone through treatment to hear their experience firsthand. Second, if you become a patient at our hospital, Cancer Fighters will continue to support you throughout your cancer treatment.
For patients at CTCA, the Cancer Fighters program:
- Supports you: Share your feelings and challenges with a network of people who have been in your shoes. Through our program, you can meet people who have been touched by cancer to find a source of compassion, and come together to receive comfort, support and hope.
- Empowers you: Get answers to your questions from fellow Cancer Fighters. You will also have access to a wide variety of valuable resources related to cancer from our Education Department, who is there to ensure that your interests are supported throughout your journey.
- Informs you: Learn the latest updates about treatments and technologies, and hospital and regional events. In addition, you’ll receive communications throughout the year that contain useful tips and timely information for those living with cancer.
