Christina Applegate, Sharon Osbourne, Cynthia Nixon, Robert Diniro and Lance Armstrong… We all know these names. These celebrities are part of a unique and not-so-enviable group: Cancer survivors. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Linda Seymour, Greenie McKee, Heidi Flinchbaugh, Patricia Lombardo and John Seymour are not household names. These are the everyday people who have battled this disease; some successfully, and others not. When the diagnosis is first announced, one of the first resources we turn to is the world wide web. Sometimes this can be more detrimental to the patient than the disease. Here, Prelude to a Cure attempts to provide current, relevant and reliable resources that can help inform you of breakthrough cancer research, statistics and general information about cancer.
