Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer support for cancer u?

Of course! We have a friendly team ready to answer your questions and solve any problems that may come along. Email us at help@cancer.university.

is there telephone support for cancer u?

We do not offer telephone support for Individual clients. In our experience, the written record created by a text-based ticketing system solves problems efficiently and effectively, and archives those solutions for future reference in a way that telephone conversations cannot.

is cancer u a nonprofit organization?

No. We looked at several different business models and a for-profit company with costs offset by corporate partners (See Opportunities) made the most sense for our vision and goals.

why is cancer u’s website black, white, and grey?

We believe most moments in life are grey, but when you hear the 'C' word for the first time, it is a black and white moment. You will always remember your life 'Before Cancer' and 'After Cancer'.

how is cancer u different from other educational websites?

Education alone does not lead to empowerment. We will show you HOW to become an advocate for your cancer care through coaching, teaching, and training.

Individuals pay month-to-month and may stop or pause their membership at any time. Group plans are annual contracts that will be reviewed one month prior to renewal to ensure all parties are satisfied.

Yes! We also offer volume discount pricing and special rates for academic and NCI-designated cancer centers.
