Cancernet:"The diagnosis of cancer of the colon or rectum, also called colorectal cancer, raises many questions and a need for clear, understandable answers. We hope this National Cancer Institute (NCI) booklet will help. It provides information on the symptoms, detection and diagnosis, and treatment, in addition to information on possible causes and prevention of cancers of the colon and rectum. Having this important information can make it easier for patients and their families to handle the challenges they face."

Articles will cover a range of topics, including medical tests, treatments, the future of research, coping, clinical trials, stories by those who have been there, and news. This material is derived from the Patient-Centered Guides book, Colon and Rectal Cancer, a Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Families, by Lorraine Johnston, copyright 2001 by O'Reilly & Associates. Patient-Centered Guides are a mix of medical, practical and emotional information, grounded in Western medicine, told by people who have been there."

National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP):"The National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) is a clinical trials cooperative group supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). We have a more than 40-year history of designing and conducting clinical trials that have changed the way breast cancer is treated, and, more recently, prevented. It was the NSABP's breast cancer studies that led to the establishment of lumpectomy plus radiation over radical mastectomy as the standard surgical treatment for breast cancer. We were also the first to demonstrate that adjuvant therapy could alter the natural history of breast cancer, increasing survival rates, and the first to demonstrate on a large scale the preventive effects of the drug tamoxifen in breast cancer."

Chemo Brain | 12 Ways to Help Someone with Chemo Brain |"The chemicals used in chemotherapy are powerful -- strong enough to kill cancer cells. That's a good thing, but they also seem to have a little-understood effect on the brain, causing cognitive problems such as memory lapses and loss of concentration. While it's tempting to think that these problems are all in the patient's mind, they're all too real, experts say. In fact, a study at the University of Rochester Medical Center found that more than 80 percent of people who receive chemotherapy for cancer report annoying memory and concentration problems that often linger for months, even after treatment is finished."
