Cancer Horizons came about when one friend called another with an idea. The idea was a completely patient-centric website that was intimate in its engagement with patients and their loved ones but also seriously scientific in the information it presented. Any scientific information would be straight-forward and direct, easily understood by all.
Cancer Horizons is patient-centric site that bridges the gap between “Research & Real People.” We are a life-affirming one stop shop of cancer-based information encompassing all types of cancer and all manner of people.
Cancer Horizons is a hub for patients and loved ones seeking information about cancer and finding not only that information but also an understanding and emotionally supportive community of peers.
We celebrate life here. We do not wait for death. We empower you via information, and you empower each other by sharing your experiences.
We don’t ask you for money. We portray many points of view, and we always want to know what you are thinking or what you would like to see.
We designed large portions of this site for you, whether you are a patient or loved one. We heard a lot about “the loneliness of cancer” and wanted to create a way for people to feel un-alone and connected.
The site you are on now is the result, and if you are a frequent visitor or contributor you know that a big part of this site is its users. While we pride ourselves on the high caliber of our information, that combined with the contributions of our users is the backbone of what we do.
We are always available to listen to what you have to say. We are creating a patient-based repository of knowledge and experience when it comes to cancer, and you telling your story enriches everyone. You can always contact us here or visit our Contribute Content page.
The conversation does not end here, either. Our Facebook page is fast and furious with all kinds of content you will not see on this site. But more importantly, there is conversation and community between our users happening there. We are also on YouTube bringing you original content.
We want you to keep swinging, to thrive and fight, so take whatever you find here and use it. Do it privately and at your own pace, or embrace the community and share your story. But whatever you, do please don’t give up… fight, and fight hard.
