Connecting with others who are also fighting cancer can be empowering. The camaraderie built from sharing the cancer experience may also be helpful in making more informed treatment decisions or getting answers to questions on a number of cancer-related topics.

Created by our cancer patients more than three decades ago, the Cancer Fighters® program may help in two ways. First, if you are considering treatment at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) and wish to talk with a patient, our Oncology Information Specialists will connect you with a current patient, caregiver or cancer survivor who has gone through treatment so you can hear his or her experience firsthand. Second, if you become a patient at our hospital, Cancer Fighters will continue to support you throughout your cancer care.

Cancer Fighters are patients, caregivers and those on a cancer journey who have volunteered their time to offer a number of resources to support fellow patients during their cancer journey. 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 will meet people who have been touched by cancer, learn from patient stories and connect with your peers. Get personalized cancer support, along with comfort and hope.

Empowers you: Get answers to your questions from fellow Cancer Fighters who have experience with your form of cancer—from pancreatic cancer to breast cancer. Access a wide variety of valuable resources related to cancer research and health care to support your interests throughout your journey.

Informs you: Get updates about cancer treatment options and technologies. Stay informed about upcoming events, fundraisers and cancer awareness campaigns. You will also receive communications throughout the year that contain useful tips and timely information to help you fight cancer.
