The goal of BCCT/CancerChoices is to help patients navigate conventional and complementary care. The Cancer Care Planning and Communications Act (CCPCA) will help patients navigate conventional care. We join the Society for Integrative Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship in supporting cancer care navigation for all. Would you like to join us? CCPCA
BCCT is the most comprehensive science-informed source for integrative cancer therapies on the web.
We help you explore the best conventional and complementary cancer therapies based on your goals and values.
Complementary therapies include natural products, lifestyle therapies and more. They can help during conventional treatment, reduce side effects and improve quality of life, delay or prevent recurrence and potentially extend life.
Navigating conventional therapies, experimental therapies and re-purposed or off-label drugs is also a key part of integrative cancer care.

Healthy lifestyle practices are a great place to start. Our 7 Healing Practices can make a real difference in fighting cancer. Research shows powerful impacts from these and other simple and inexpensive practices.
Fear, anxiety, depression, anger, uncertainty, confusion and sleeplessness are common after a cancer diagnosis. You can do a lot to reduce them, often without pharmaceuticals.
A cancer diagnosis is often isolating. We heal in community.
Where do you find others with whom you can share this experience?
The shock of a cancer diagnosis may close some doors and open others. What matters in your life may change. Religion, spirituality, love, nature and other ways of making meaning may open or deepen for you. We offer guidance—and stories.
