CancerChoices is a balanced, actionable resource for people with cancer who want to be proactive in their cancer care.

Its database of complementary therapy reviews, and handbooks on managing side effects and more are both actionable and thoroughly researched, with all sources cited. As a program of the nonprofit organization Commonweal, CancerChoices is an independent voice, promoting informed choice in cancer care.
