We know and value that people impacted by cancer have a unique story to tell whether as a patient, a family member, or a caregiver.  The Cancer Experience Registry™ is an opportunity to share about your quality of life, your access to care, the impact of cancer on work, treatment decision making, and more, to improve the quality of cancer care on a local and national level. Locally, this data informs Gilda’s Club about critical needs in Middle Tennessee, enabling us to provide programs that are helpful to the people who live here. Additionally, the Registry supports us by providing data for grants that provide financial support to our free cancer support Program. Nationally, Cancer Support Community’s Cancer Policy Institute (CPI) offers data to policy makers to ensure they are helping patients. The CPI also advances knowledge through presentations and publication in leading medical journals. This is the “evidence” of our evidence-based approach. We are proud to be part of the Cancer Support Community which offers this unique and important research about your experiences. Please consider participating.  Thank you,
