Raising awareness of cancer, getting involved after treatment

While some people prefer to put their experiences with cancer behind them after they finish treatment, many choose to draw on what they've been through to get involved with cancer-related activities. They may feel that there are certain areas or issues where there's more work to be done. Or perhaps someone helped and inspired them during treatment and they feel it's their turn to give to others.

Whether it's learning how to help their neighbors, joining an educational group, walking or running in a race like Steppin' Out in Pink at Gundersen or joining a group that makes decisions about cancer research or programs, the options are endless.

Get a comprehensive booklet of ideas about ways you can give to others, provided by the National Cancer Institute. It's written for anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer or affected by it in some way. There are many options for people to choose from: giving support, helping with outreach and education, fundraising and raising awareness about research or public health issues.
