As you likely are aware, the NCI publishes many helpful guides for patients. They have now announced a new free app that can help with making informed decisions throughout a cancer experience. This app is available for both Android and IOS. (and, as an aside, it tickles me to write this and to be happily aware that I am tech savy enough to throw around some of the language)

This new app is basically a way to access most of their information and guides easily and from whatever device you normally tote around with you.

NCCN Patient Guides for Cancer App 
Available for Android and iOS 
NCCN Foundation® empowers patients to make informed decisions at each step of their cancer 
journey. 
The NCCN Guidelines for Patients® and NCCN Quick Guide™ sheets are based on the same 
treatment information doctors use and help patients talk to their doctors about the best treatment 
options for their disease. 
These step-by-step guides to the latest advances in cancer care, feature: 
> Questions to ask the cancer team 
> Patient-friendly illustrations 
> Glossaries of terms and acronyms
