The following resources are available to help meet these challenges.
Information About Cancer
Information Specialists at the National Cancer Instituteâ€™s Cancer Information Service can provide information on cancer clinical trials and cancer related resources in Hawaii and throughout the nation.
They can be reached Monday through Friday from 3 am to 3 pm Hawaii time at 1-800-4-CANCER (1-800-422-6237)
Publications on cancer and cancer treatment, videos, and other materials are available at no cost and can be ordered by visiting the NCI Website at cancer.gov
The University of Hawaii Cancer Center collaborates with many local hospitals to conduct and support clinical trials, or studies of newer treatments. Also, the quality of care at these facilities in Hawaii meets high standards.
People with cancer and their families sometimes need assistance coping with the emotional as well as the practical aspects of their disease. Numerous organizations and facilities provide services to people with cancer, and this database contains many, but not all of them.
