The Cancer Experience Registry is a unique online community that allows people facing cancer to share their experience, identify the issues that impact their lives, take surveys, access resources, and learn from each other. It is free, confidential, and open to anyone who had been diagnosed with cancer or provides care to a cancer patient.

Once you are registered and have completed the survey, you are invited to a new (and optional) online forum that will connect you with other patients and caregivers who are affected by cancer. The forum provides a safe and support environment for you to share your own expertise, or learn from others "who have been there." By partnering with Smart Patients, the Cancer Experience Registry is helping empower patients to improve care for themselves and others. Join the Smart Patients Cancer Experience Forum, ask a question, and support others who can learn from you.
