"The inauguration of CANCER Online as an adjunct to CANCER in print is a
great advance toward the realization of one of the American Cancer
Society's major strategic goals in providing cancer information," said Dr.
Harmon J. Eyre, Executive Vice President for Research and Cancer Control
at the national headquarters of the American Cancer Society. "With this
timely information, physicians will be better able to advise cancer
patients and their families about all the treatment options available to
them, and patients diagnosed with cancer will be empowered to make
informed decisions about their treatment."

Now in its 49th year of publication, CANCER is a peer-reviewed publication
of the American Cancer Society whose objective is to provide an
interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of information among oncologic
disciplines concerned with the etiology and course of human cancer. In
keeping with the mission of the American Cancer Society, CANCER also seeks
to contribute to cancer prevention, early detection, diagnosis, cure, and
rehabilitation, and to diminish suffering from cancer.
