THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its ongoing mission to serve cancer patients, Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer® initiative announced the launch of its enhanced website that provides cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers a 'one-stop shop' of  essential resources spanning cancer prevention, education, patient care, advocacy, and financial support.

The website, www.breakawayfromcancer.com, features a powerful new cancer resource navigator tool developed to help cancer patients maneuver through the complicated maze of online information that currently exists. The tool conducts a targeted search based on user-entered criteria from more than 100 hand-selected credible cancer websites to offer patients the information they need.

The newly-enhanced website also provides detailed information on the resources and assistance offered by the Breakaway from Cancer nonprofit partners: Prevent Cancer Foundation, Cancer Support Community (formerly known as The Wellness Community), Patient Advocate Foundation, and National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship.
