We subscribe to the HONcode principles.
This means that all advertising is labeled. On this site the advertising can be found in the right hand column and the bottom of the page. Advertising is presented to cover the cost of maintaining the site. This site was not set up and is not intended to profit from the breast cancer experience. The goal is to provide information, the ads simply cover the money it takes to run the site.
This means that this site does not give medical advice. The articles are written for your information. They are not meant to take the place of professional medical advice. The information that you receive on this site is a supplement to - not a substitute for - the advice of your doctor. The goal of this site is to make you a more informed patient. With information you are able to become an active part of your medical team, rather than being passively acted on.
This means that we try our best to present accurate information. When we get information from an outside source, we will let you know what the source was so that you can make sure we are not misinterpreting any information. There are too many places that are willing to pass on misinformation or biased information. We try not to add to that group.
