New Online Resource Acts As Powerful Tool in the Battle against Cancer
Date:12/7/2012

Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) December 07, 2012

As a cancer survivor,People Beating Cancer(PBC) director David Emerson knows how important it is to be able to find information about cancer treatments sooner than later. He reflects on his experience as it relates to what many people diagnosed with cancer go through. “As soon as you’re diagnosed, the doctor doesn’t want you to leave the hospital without committing to a treatment. You’re lucky if you have 24 hours to go home and think about it.”

David Emerson is a rarity among those who have faced cancer. A multiple myeloma survivor since 1994, Emerson was told by the doctors that there was nothing more they could do and that he had 6-12 months to live. He cashed in his life insurance and focused all his waking hours on scouring the internet for a viable treatment alternative. Eventually, Emerson found the treatment that ultimately saved his life, but cancer patients and their families often do not have that kind of time. By launching the new online cancer resource, Emerson is attempting to close the gap between the amount of information out there about cancer treatments and the amount of time cancer patients and their families have to become informed decision makers.

“You need one place where you can go to find out about your treatment options and learn more about those options from other survivors who have already gone through the same treatments,” stated Emerson. “There is an apparent lack of cancer survivor research and resources that take into account the personal experience of the diagnosed. I always think - If I knew then what I know now how might have things been different? When it comes to surviving cancer, knowledge truly is power.”

People Beating Cancer strives to empower cancer survivors by being a one-stop information powerhouse where cancer survivors and their caregivers can find answers quickly in an open forum.

“Sharing information is a critical role in fighting cancer,” Emerson added. “Without the ability to share information easily, cancer survivors end up fighting their own battle, repeating mistakes, and wasting valuable time. Collective knowledge will save lives. I ask that anyone who has been touched by cancer take the time to visit the website and share as much as they can about their own personal experience. Together, we are stronger.”

Another big part of the continued fight against cancer is the support of the community. People Beating Cancer is a nonprofit organization that depends on contributions and donations from the public. With support PBC, can provide more conclusive and useful resources for people diagnosed with cancer looking for alternative solutions and support.
