Cancerfocus.org exists at the boundary between the cancer patient and the treating physician: the Ph.D. researcher. When a cancer diagnosis occurs, the first reaction for the patient is to study the internet, ask friends, get second opinions. Unfortunately, the chances that a cancer patient is going to be at a center of excellence for their disease are very slim. Compounding the issue is the fact that few physicians will suggest the patient receive treatment elsewhere. The cutting edge of research, however, is known and performed by Ph.D. cancer research scientists. This Ph.D. resource is familiar not only with new research but with the centers performing it. By linking patients to researchers, cancerfocus.org provides an UNBIASED resource, as Ph.D's do not treat patients. In fact, their main patient is often mice. This knowledge of research that may be 10 years away from market can save valuable time for patients that often go through needless rounds of chemotherapy.
