Cancer Support Services Disclaimer
The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education (BeatCancer.org) is a not-for-profit cancer information, counseling and referral center operating under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and complaint with the United States federal guidelines for a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
BeatCancer.org provides education to its clients and is not licensed to diagnose, prescribe or treat. Neither BeatCancer.org nor the individuals and support centers it certifies make any medical decisions for their clients. Further, the Center does not certify the professional skills of those it trains; certification entitles them to share educational information but does not certify in any way their therapeutic skills.
BeatCancer.org and those who are entitled to share its educational information through its Certified Individual Cancer Support Educator program, its Certified Cancer Support Center program, or its Affiliate program, make such information available for educational purposes only. Those who offer BeatCancer.org educational services, information, counseling and referrals without a medical license indeed do so in order to give you a general understanding of issues related to health and well being, not to provide specific medical advice.
By using the services of BeatCancer.org or its affiliates, you understand that there is no doctor-patient relationship between you, BeatCancer.org, and/or its affiliates. The information offered should not be used as a substitute for competent medical advice from a licensed professional physician in your state.
Clients are further advised to check written product information data regarding dosage, precautions, and contraindications before self-administering any drug, herb, supplement, compound, therapy, treatment, and or preventative measure recommended by either BeatCancer.org or those it has trained. The information is educational in nature and is not to be regarded as a recommendation for self-medication in the absence of proper medical supervision.
BeatCancer.org and its certified educators shall not be responsible for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or any other damages arising in connection with the services and information provided.
Treatment options and health services recommended through BeatCancer.org or its certified educators may not be covered by your health insurance plan, and BeatCancer.org shall not be held liable for such options.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold BeatCancer.org, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and certified educators harmless from and against any claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements including without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your misunderstanding, misinterpretation, or misuse of the aforementioned conditions.
