Helping Employees Work Through Cancer

Everyone is touched by cancer, whether they’re fighting it themselves or they have a close friend or family member who has suffered. It can be hard to know how to help people dealing with cancer. Our new site Stronger Together helps employers by providing resources you can share with employees who have been diagnosed or who are caring for someone with cancer.

There’s information for patients, survivors, caregivers and providers that can help during all phases of cancer – from diagnosis to survivorship, and everything in between. Websites, tools, apps, and more are organized by audience so it’s easy to determine the tools that are best for you. This website can be a helpful starting point for anyone who is dealing with cancer since all the resources have been collected in one spot.
