Patient Empowerment Network

To achieve the best possible outcome from a cancer diagnosis, you have to be empowered to ask the right questions, at the right time. But where to start?

Start here, with the Patient Empowerment Network (PEN); we’ll be here to support you through every step of your cancer journey.

Whether you are a cancer patient or caregiver, knowledge is your superpower. Through our free resources, we’ll educate, then ACTIVATE you to ensure you’re empowered to make treatment decisions for the most current and personalized care available.

By following our Path to Empowerment Framework, you’ll learn to be a self-advocate, and to advocate for others starting from the day of diagnosis through post-treatment. Based on the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Experience Map, the information you’ll find within the framework’s six categories will provide you with easy-to-understand and reliable information.

PEN’s free online resources for cancer patients and care partners are here to help whenever you need them: 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Covering diagnosis and testing, treatment, clinical trials, financing cancer treatment, recovery, and everything in between, we’ll connect you to the programs, experts, peers, and other resources that are improving cancer outcomes.

Become empowered. Let PEN help.
