Subject: Cancer Resources to Help Understand Treatment Options

Hello Dave,

HHS’s Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) offers a
growing library of easy-to-understand, evidence-based resources on the
most common types of cancer that might be of interest as a resource
for you and your readers. We thought you might be interested given
your own experience with kidney cancer and your dedication to patient

Cancer continues to be a critical issue in health care, as current
trends predict that one in two men and women will be diagnosed with
cancer in their lifetime. Healthcare professionals and patients need
to know the treatment options that are available to them and the
bottom-line facts on which
treatments may help or harm.

AHRQ’s Effective Health Care program is a valuable resource for the
most up-to-date research on treatments for some of the most common
forms of
cancer. It’s simple to find the latest research that helps health
professionals and patients to compare cancer treatment options and
make decisions together about the best course of treatment. The
growing library of cancer resources includes consumer and clinician
summaries comparing treatment options for breast, prostate, head and
neck and pediatric cancers.

Please visit the AHRQ cancer page at to view these resources
and encourage your readers to share these resources with their family
and friends.
