The CANCERactive Difference: Intelligent Information. Independent Voice. On this web site you will find more infomation about more treatment options (Complementary and Alternative, not just Orthodox), and on more possible contributory factors to the development and maintenance of your cancer, than on any other UK cancer web site. Some experts believe that approaching your cancer in this total way can increase an individuals chances of survival by as much as 60 per cent.This is all supported by the very latest research evidence from all over the world in our news section Cancer Watch
We can do this because we are not hide-bound by vested interests, and so we can always put people first. We are not influenced by companies who seek to make financial gains from patients, we have no trustees working for, or sponsored directly or indirectly by such companies, our directors take no remuneration at all. This is our true independence, from which you benefit directly. 
But this independence comes at a price: We can only rely on you, and people like you, to support our work. 47,703 people visited our site in March 2007, viewing 11 pages on average. Every month we add 20 new pages to this site. The letters and e-mails of gratitude and praise tell us we really do make a difference.

If you feel an independent voice is essential in cancer, please, please help by making a donation.  Every little helps.

The Truth is that on this site you will find so much more. 
You can plan your own, all-embracing, treatment programme, with Cancer - Your first 15 Steps; or you can look for what might have caused your cancer, and what might be maintaining it and so try to cut it out of your life. Start with the IV Pillars of Cancer
Or go to our Home page (click on the Home tag at the top of the page) to find the latest news - hot topics we have covered recently we promise one or two will definitely be relevant to you.
 
With CANCERactive you get so much more to increase your chances of beating cancer
