How can LIVESTRONG help with exploring treatment options?
LIVESTRONG can help you understand your cancer diagnosis and what questions to ask. We also help with:
- Understanding treatment options
- Understanding the importance of a second opinion
- Finding out how to communicate better with doctors, spouse, family or loved ones
- Finding clinical trial options and new treatments in development
After I got my diagnosis, I immediately contacted LIVESTRONG. Within 48 hours, I had a support system. My navigator explained what my reports meant in layman's terms, and she provided me with questions I should ask my doctors. She explained, "What you have is very rare so you need a second opinion." My surgeon was astounded I had access to these resources.
LIVESTRONG guided me through a very complex system. The navigators are the cream of the crop helping you through the process.
