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.
