CR Magazine - Another Great Resource for Cancer Patients, Survivors and Caregivers

CR was launched by the American Association for Cancer Research in March 2006 to serve an unmet need: a forum for sharing credible, balanced information about cancer and perspectives on the pressing challenges in cancer research today. We believe that collaborations among members of the cancer community—survivors and those who care for and about them—will lead to results in cancer prevention, treatment and care.
CR Magazine has a print version and an on line version. The CR website offers some interesting podcasts which have been created to address specific issues of interest to cancer patients. Some examples of the podcasts which are accessible on the website are:
