What articles do you post?

We select articles that we believe will either benefit people with cancer or are informative to those who do not have cancer. For example, we include posts on how to deal with cancer treatment side effects, such as chemotherapy nausea. We also have explanatory articles on how treatments work and personal experiences from cancer patients describing their symptoms and how they managed their diagnosis, any cancer treatment and their cancer journeys.

We don't post articles

  • that harm the reputation of another person, group, or organization.
  • that have been published elsewhere.
  • regarding treatments that are not recommended by mainstream medicine.

Who writes the articles?

Each article is written by an expert in their fields or people who have had first-hand experience with cancer. Either as patients with cancer or caregivers, friends, relatives, loved ones.  We also include authors who provide services and products that are beneficial to patients with cancer.

If you would like to write a post, please contact us, we are always happy to hear your point of view. Our guidelines for article submission can be found here
