What is Radiation Therapy?

Radiation therapy uses high energy waves (usually x-rays or electrons) to damage the DNA of cancer cells. With the genetic machinery of the cell damaged beyond repair, cancers are not able to replicate and, therefore, are destroyed. Normal cells can repair themselves, whereas cancer cells cannot. These principles form the crux of how ionizing radiation can be harnessed to fight cancer.

Patient Support Groups

Cancer support groups are meetings for people with cancer and anyone touched by the disease. They can have many benefits. Even though a lot of people receive support from friends and family, the number one reason they join a support group is to be with others who have similar cancer experiences. Some research shows that joining a support group improves both quality of life and survival. In addition, support groups can provide a valuable opportunity to talk to others about your feelings and how to work through them. For a list of support groups available at UCI, click here:
