About the CancerHelp Institute

We've been helping patients, caregivers, and health professionals for over 20 years with our cancer patient education touchscreen programs. Our interactive software is updated monthly with a wealth of information from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) See our "Content" section to learn more.

Our CancerHelp original logo is shown below. In our early years as the Institute we worked closely with the National Cancer Institute and the Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN) and their member cancer centers and hospitals to help them with interactive patient education software.

The CancerHelp Institute's programs have included the following:
Computer services; namely, providing access to computer databases via subscription in the field of cancer, the treatment of cancer, care available, guidelines for living with cancer, and other related information.

We work closely with our subscribing cancer centers, infusion rooms, outpatient chemotherapy and radiation therapy centers. By providing easy-to-use learning tools for their patients it lets health educators, doctors, and nurses know that patients are accessing the most up-to-date information from the most trusted source, the National Cancer Institute.
