strategic-alliance-logoThe Empowerment and Action for Cancer Care alliance between Genentech and WellPoint, Inc., in collaboration with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), has launched an effort to bring the Cancer Survival Toolbox to both plan members and the cancer community. This is all part of the alliance’s mission to provide innovative resources and tools aimed at enhancing patient empowerment for cancer patients/survivors and their families/caregivers.

The Cancer Survival Toolbox is an award-winning, self-learning audio program that was developed by leading cancer organizations to help people develop important skills to better meet and understand the challenges of their illness. The Toolbox contains a set of basic skills CDs to help navigate a diagnosis and CDs for special topics on key issues faced by people with cancer.
