The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) is proud to present a comprehensive set of free educational courses designed to support patients and caregivers that answers the question, “What do I need to know?” for a cancer journey. From the basics of “what is cancer?” to understanding treatments, clinical trials and how genetics play a role, to lifestyle discussions on sexual health and nutrition, these courses meet you where you are to answer the questions you might have.


Cancer survivorship is about more than surviving your treatment or making the cancer go away forever. Survivorship is about living, and is something you and your treatment team should be thinking about from the time you are diagnosed, throughout your treatment and beyond. You are a survivor from the day you were diagnosed, and this section offers some information and resources to help you promote your survivorship.


The term family caregiver or caregiver has become common in our culture over the last decade. A caregiver is anyone who provides physical, emotional, spiritual, financial or logistical support to a loved one with a chronic, disabling or life-threatening illness.

Palliative Care

Palliative care (also referred to as comfort care, supportive care or symptom management) is care given to improve the quality of life of patients who have a serious or life-threatening disease, such as cancer. The goal of palliative care is to prevent or treat as early as possible the symptoms of cancer, as well as treat the side effects caused by life-prolonging treatments of cancer. Palliative care also addresses psychological, social and spiritual problems related to cancer or its treatment, thus providing patients with whole-person care, not just care of their cancer.

Financial Resources

A cancer diagnosis will have an impact on you and your immediate family in many ways. Having sufficient health insurance and the financial resources to pay for cancer treatments may be a concern. Whether you are newly diagnosed or no longer in active treatment, it is important to have an understanding of common health care coverage terms as well as access to treatment. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about covering your health care expenses, and where you might go for additional assistance.
