What Our Community is Saying About PEN
“PEN has been my go-to site for CLL Information for several years. The webinars are exceptional and very informative on updated information and care. This site brings me comfort and peace of mind in keeping up with new treatment information and education. I’m very grateful because Dr. appointments don’t allow the time to learn and ask questions, so PEN had been there for me always.” – Judith L.
“PEN has provided me, and the cancer community, with much pertinent and timely information about a lot of different cancers.” – Robert E.
“I came upon Patient Empowerment Network. It gave me reasoned and researched information along with some very positive stories from others who were going through similar journeys to mine. It was the first element of hope that I found in the early stages of my diagnosis and helped me immensely during the first few years.” – Elizabeth J.
“I was both a client served and an event participant. When I was first diagnosed with AML, PEN was an enlightening and inspirational resource. I not only gained valuable information about my illness and treatments but also was inspired by others who shared my illness and were living full lives despite it. ” – Patricia F.
