Care During Chemotherapy and Beyond
Chemocare.com is a comprehensive resource for cancer patients and their caregivers that provides chemotherapy drug and side effect information, cancer wellness information, and links to additional reliable resources and organizations.
While undergoing cancer treatment at Cleveland Clinic, Scott Hamilton, an Olympic gold medalist in figure skating, discovered that it was difficult to find a reliable online resource where information about chemotherapy was presented in a clear, easy to understand and easy to locate format. As a result, his idea to create a patient friendly website was born. Chemocare.com went online in December 2002 to provide cancer patients and their caregivers with clear and accurate information about chemotherapy, and to empower them to become active participants in their treatment. Several updates to the site since 2002 include translating the website into Spanish, becoming mobile friendly, educational videos, as well as continuing to add and update all FDA approved drugs for the treatment of cancer.
All information provided on this website is created and reviewed by a multidisciplinary team at Cleveland Clinic or is referenced from reliable community resources.
Chemocare.com is designed to provide the latest information about chemotherapy to patients and their families, caregivers and friends. For information about the 4th Angel Mentoring Program visit www.4thangel.org
