I am a cancer survivor who took control of his cancer because of articles, studies, blogs and forums I read on the Internet.

In 1994 my brother, David Emerson, the founder of PeopleBeatingCancer, got multiple myeloma. Over several years, radiation and chemo beat back the tumors but they kept returning, until the MDs could give him no more.

PeopleBeatingCancer offers cancer survivors and their caregivers an alternative source of information. I was most struck by the way in which their website allows cancer survivors to connect with one another in a space where no question, and no therapy, is off-limits for discussion and evaluation. This is a critical service to offer in a world where health care is not always treated as a personal choice based on what's best for the individual, but rather as an affirmation of what big pharma deems an appropriate action. People should be able to make informed, individual choices about their cancer care, and PeopleBeatingCancer works to promote this stance.
