Find the treatments most likely to work for you.

By collecting treatment results from all patients, we can show what worked best for patients like you. Share your cancer story and data, and we’ll help you achieve the best possible outcome.

We know cancer is thousands of distinct molecular diseases. We can profile and treat tumors with precision therapies. We can collect, analyze and distribute massive amounts of data. So why is most treatment knowledge not openly shared? Join The Commons and let’s change this.

Cancer Commons is a nonprofit that unites patients, oncologists and scientists to make sure you have the personalized, up-to-date information needed to beat your cancer.

Whether you're newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment, or searching for a clinical trial, our KnowledgeBase will guide you through the entire process.
