SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--No longer will anyone have to face cancer alone. HealthSupportNetwork.org is now providing free programs and services to cancer patients, along with their caregivers and other family members.
High-quality online videos are based on extensive research and are produced in collaboration with multiple partners in the medical community. Programs include content relevant to multiple types of cancer – nutrition, exercise, stress reduction techniques, etc. – as well as up-to-date cancer-specific information.
All programs will be available anywhere, anytime on any web-based device. The programs are currently aimed at the 14 million cancer survivors living in the United States, plus their family members and other caregivers. This number is projected to grow to nearly 20 million cancer survivors in 10 years, according to the National Cancer Institute.
Although in-person support provides optimum benefits to those impacted by cancer, modern technology offers other advantages. For example, there is now overwhelming data that better self-care increases life quality and causes positive changes even at the molecular level. The latest video animation capabilities can actually demonstrate the impact of stress reduction, proper nutrition and exercise inside the human body.
HealthSupportNetwork.org already is working with great partners to deliver the latest evidence-based cancer support content, and it will continue to partner with world class health care providers to extend the quantity and quality of cancer information and resources. Current partners include Moffitt Cancer Center, the only Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state of Florida, as well as Florida Cancer Specialists, the largest independent medical oncology practice in the United States.
All those affected by cancer deserve the best cancer information and support available regardless of their situation or location. It is now available at HealthSupportNetwork.org
Health Support Network, Inc. began operations in Sarasota, FL, as The Wellness Community in 1995. The organization currently operates the Center for Building Hope, which offers a broad array of cancer support programs – free of charge – to cancer patients, family members and other caregivers. Its main fundraising arm is Brides Against Breast Cancer, which sells donated wedding gowns at a discount throughout the United States via their Nationwide Tour of Gowns.
