    I am a teacher, and love to read articles and books. I just need help from you people; actually I want to learn about cancer. Cancer is a disease and the cure is in debates. I want to now about the disease in more detail and want to know the in and outs of cancer. Friends I just want to know a source where cancer patients share their experience and problems, cancer symptom, what they fell and all. Hope you guys will help me.

    Thanks a lot!!!

    Hi Oswald

    As you may know, there are millions of sites regarding cancer on the Internet, but the following two links may give you a good start in learning more about cancer (the first link is US, and the second is from the UK):

    American Cancer Society

    CancerHelp UK

    Good luck with your research.

    Best wishes

    I agree that Cancerbacup is a great site,Regards,Helen

  3. Macmillan Cancer Support took over CancerBacup a while ago and although the booklets may still be under the CancerBacup name, Macmillan Cancer Support has a super site which includes cancer information, support, campaigning, forum etc
