Cancer Survivor Resource in Chinese, English and Spanish

The Cancer Survival Toolbox is a free, self-learning audio program, developed by the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, to help people better meet and understand the challenges of their illness.

The Toolbox includes ten modules. Modules 1 through 6 cover six basic skills:

Finding Information/Búsqueda de información
Making Decisions/Toma de decisiones
Solving Problems/Solución a los problemas
Negotiating/Negociación, and
Standing Up for Your Rights/Defensa de sus derechos

Modules 7, 8, 9 and 10 build on the skills learned in the first six modules and relate them to specific aspects of cancer survivorship. These three modules cover:

Topics for Older Persons/Temas para la tercera edad
Finding Ways to Pay for Care/Búsquedas de alternativas para pagar los cuidados
Caring for the Caregiver/Cuidados para el encargado del paciente, and
Living Beyond Cancer/Vida después del cáncer

The public can listen to the 10 modules in Spanish or English directly from the website, can download them as MP3 or Real Audio files, or can order the modules on CD at no cost.
