Clarity. Compassion. Choice. Since 1969.
Thesecondopinion provides free comprehensive second opinions to adults in California diagnosed with cancer, using a panel format. Our purpose is to give cancer patients, with limited medical resources, and their family members the clarity they need to make decisions about treatment.
"Because of thesecondopinion, I was able to finally make a very big decision regarding my next level of treatment." Kara, breast cancer patient
Volunteer physicians come from medical practices and facilities throughout the Bay Area. Requests for our service are increasing and we are actively recruiting physicians to volunteer with us. We strongly encourage applications from pathologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons with oncology sub-specialties.
Dr. David Lakes "We are providing a very important service to people who want a second opinion, but cannot afford it."
Your gift will provide someone diagnosed with cancer the gift of clarity, compassion and choice. We do not receive government support, bill insurance companies, or charge for our service. 100% of our funding comes from foundations, corporations and compassionate individuals that believe everyone should have access to a second opinion.
Bernadette and Andrea "Donating to thesecondopinion will make a big impact on the cancer community, by helping others like me who need clarity and peace of mind."
