An updated story from one of our colleagues is in our Story collection.

What are your real choices in cancer therapies?

Surgery. Radiation. Chemo. Other conventional treatments. Are these your only options?

64% of Americans with cancer use complementary cancer therapies. And almost 40% believe that alternative therapies alone can cure cancer.

What should you believe? How can you separate myth from science and facts?

BCCT explores the best of integrative cancer care, which frequently combines conventional and complementary treatments.

We know that using alternative therapies alone for curable cancers is dangerous.

But we also know that the right blend of complementary and conventional therapies can improve your quality of life, help you do better during treatment, and potentially extend your life as well.

We offer that kind of balanced guidance—and the evidence to help you make your choices.
