  • Identify how you prefer to make decisions about cancer and cancer treatment
  • Find out the benefits of getting a second opinion to help you make decisions
  • Identify how much time you have to make a decision
  • Weigh the pros and cons in making a decision about cancer treatment
  • Understand that you are an individual, NOT a cancer statistic
