Information, resources and support are three of the most important tools in the fight against cancer. At Dayton Physicians Network we believe that information is an essential part of treatment. Knowledge is power, and there’s no time in your life when you need to feel empowered more than when you’re undergoing cancer treatment. The more you know, the more you can be a part of your recovery.
Below you will find a wealth of information that can help you and your caregivers; knowledge to understand your diagnosis and treatment, and the opportunity to find resources and support that may also provide assistance. We collaborate with local and national organizations when possible and then offer you links to other reputable organizations to meet additional needs.
