Published quarterly by the AACR, Cancer Today is an authoritative resource for cancer patients, survivors, and their family members and friends. In every issue, Cancer Today offers information and inspiration to help readers face the challenges of diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and caregiving.

This issue of Cancer Today includes “Health Care Reform: What Does It Mean to You?,” a Q&A that explains how the complex Affordable Care Act could affect people undergoing cancer treatment. “Prostate Cancer, Redefined” highlights new options for patients and their caregivers as they navigate a prostate cancer diagnosis. “High Anxiety” describes research suggesting that fear and worry may persist long after cancer treatment ends.
