Drug Treatment Information You Can Understand

Heard about a new cancer treatment or drug? New technology and research are continuing to offer us new ways to combat cancer.

As the FDA approves more new cancer treatments and drugs, we’ll do our best to help educate and inform cancer patients on these new treatments. Each video provides an overview of how the treatment works, which types of cancer the treatment targets and what types of side effects may occur from a particular treatment.

It’s an exciting time in cancer research and we will do our part to offer updates and reviews on these new ways to take on cancer.
