Cancer Resource Guide
The Arkansas Cancer Coalition currently has Arkansas specific Cancer Resource Guides that we would like to provide to our partners, free of charge, to distribute to newly diagnosed cancer patients. The Cancer Resource Guides are tailored to specific cancers, such as: Breast, Lung, Ovarian, Prostate, Cervical, Colorectal, Bladder, Melanoma, Oral, and Skin. The Cancer Resource Guides include important information for cancer patients, such as: telephone directory, appointment notes, questions to ask your doctor, how to talk to loved ones, caregiver tips, and medical terms. If you are interested in receiving some Cancer Resource Guides in bulk please give us a call at 501-603-5211. Below is a downloadable PDF copy of the guide.
