Since The Campaign launched in 2015, you may have seen our promotions in a newspaper or magazine. Here are The Campaign’s “Super Facts” about cancer and the sources which support the data:
Cancer.Net is ASCO’s physician-approved patient information website. It provides instant access to the most current information on more than 120 types of cancer. Every year, millions of people visit this CCF-funded site for credible information about cancer.
One of the most ambitious efforts to share cutting-edge knowledge is CCF donor support of ASCO’s CancerLinQ™, a robust quality monitoring system that collects and analyzes data from all patient encounters. It also gives doctors the ability to learn, in real time, from every case shared by participating physicians all over the United States. With CancerLinQ, doctors can access the latest information and trends to deliver to their patients the highest possible quality of care no matter where they are.
