New Website Offers Texas Residents Reliable Cancer Information
M. D. Anderson News Release 03/29/00

A new web site providing Texans with accurate and reliable information on cancer-related resources, publications and information is now available on the Internet.

The Cancer Gateway of Texas was launched in February 2000 in response to concerns about a lack of easily accessed, reliable cancer information on the Internet. Located at, the Cancer Gateway of Texas provides links to reputable, non-commercial web sites offering current information relating to cancer and the cancer experience free of charge.

The Cancer Gateway differs from other Internet health sites in that each link has been reviewed for quality and usefulness by the site’s Texas Link Evaluation Committee. These members are drawn from the steering committee of the Physician Oncology Education Program of the Texas Medical Association.

Selected sites are organized in categories by disease type, such as lung, colon and breast as well as topic area, such as prevention, treatment and support. Links to Texas-based sites are accessible through the Gateway and are designated by a small Texas icon. National organizations featuring credible information on rare cancers or general cancer-related issues that may be beneficial to Texans also are featured.

The Cancer Gateway of Texas can be contacted by e-mail at, or by telephone at (713) 792-2277. Development and administration of the site is supported by the Texas Cancer Data Center, and funded by the Texas Cancer Council through an interagency contract with The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.
