ecancerpatient is a not-for-profit website that gives cancer patients access to the same information that is currently available to cancer professionals. Our aim is to support patients who would like to become more involved in making joint decisions about the treatment and care they receive.
We believe that patients will only be able to become active partners in the management of their cancer care, by becoming well informed about the latest developments in the world of cancer. Through ecancerpatient.org, we aim to help empower patients and contribute to making this possible.
ecancer provides all of the medical information and scientific support for ecancerpatient.org.
ecancer is the leading oncology channel committed to improving cancer communication and education with the goal of optimising patient care and outcomes. By using the latest technologies ecancer works closely with leading figures in oncology to inform and educate the global cancer community.
ecancer is the science and multimedia partner of the European CanCer Organisation and the official scientific journal of the European Institute of Oncology and the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes.
ecancerpatient.org would not be possible without the kind support of the Cannon Foundation.
The Cannon Foundation:
The Cannon Foundation, an English registered charity, is particularly interested in supporting health related projects and contemporary arts.
Our sponsorship of ecancerpatient complements our support of sixpartswater.org, with both projects providing reliable health information aimed to make a real difference to patients, their family and friends. We would encourage you to explore the wealth of health information available on the sixpartswater.org website. We also ask you to contribute your experiences and personal stories, and what you know about your body, in the Shared Info section of the website.
