Cancer Care Connection, an independent non-profit information program for people affected by cancer, provides telephone consultation by masters level health professions who are highly trained in oncology (Cancer Resource Coaches). Compassionate individualized attention enables callers to tell their stories, identify areas of need and create a plan of action. Counselors coach people to identify the frequently overlooked questions to ask and to improve patient communication with the many medical specialists involved in cancer care. Using a specially created database, the organization helps people find local, regional, and national service and information resources. Cancer Care Connection provides a free public service and provides training to other providers who serve people affected by cancer.
