31 May Explore Triage Cancer’s Award-Winning Animated Videos
We understand that everyone learns differently, and that’s why we’ve created an extensive library of FREE cancer-related educational videos – perfect for visual learners. Each animated video is about five minutes long and puts complicated topics like health insurance, medical bills, rights at work, and much more, into terms you can understand. These videos are a great tool if you are newly diagnosed, or not sure where to begin.
Videos are available in English, Spanish, and Japanese.
While these videos are designed specifically for individuals diagnosed with cancer, caregivers, and oncology health care professionals, they are a useful tool for anyone with a serious medical condition, or really anyone at all.
