You may also request referrals to services that can help with your recovery, such as smoking cessation, physical therapy and rehabilitation, psychosocial support and counseling.

The support of others going through a similar experience can be very helpful when you’re dealing with cancer. We offer several cancer support groups for people in all stages of their cancer journey, including testing, treatment and follow-up. All groups are free.

Clinical trials allow researchers to evaluate new treatments for cancer and other diseases. When you participate in a trial, you may gain access to a new treatment before it’s widely available. Researchers are careful to try to make their studies as safe as possible, and they follow participants carefully. Still, it is not without risk. It’s important to weigh the potential benefits and risks before agreeing to take part.
