Resources for Caregivers

The National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center (NCSRC)

The NCSRC is a collaborative initiative of the ACS and the George Washington University Cancer Institute. It is funded by a five-year cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The NCSRC goal is to shape the future of cancer survivorship care and improve the quality of life of cancer survivors as they transition from treatment to recovery. The NCSRC provides evidence-based information, resources and support to cancer survivors, caregivers, friends and family. It is also aimed at improving survivorship knowledge and skills of health care professionals, community-based organizations and government organizations. The NCSRC also recommends action to policy and decision makers.
