Cancer is the #2 leading cause of death for Americans. We probably all know a relative or friend who has struggled with this disease. There are many local, state, and federal support services and resources available to individuals and families fighting or recovering from this disease.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has compiled all of this information into a helpful guide for people living with cancer and their families.
To get connected to more than 100 organizations nationwide that provide emotional, practical, and financial help, visit Support Services for People Living with Cancer.
