Chemocare.com Ahora en Español
Chemocare.com, the Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative’s popular chemotherapy information website, is now bilingual. Through the generosity of a Taussig Cancer Institute patient and her family, the site has been translated into Spanish.
“Making Chemocare.com available in Spanish has been one of my long-held dreams,” said CARES founder Scott Hamilton. “Chemocare. com is an unbelievable resource that needs to be accessible to as many people as possible. I am so grateful to the family that made this possible.”
Although Spanish is the third most widely spoken language in the world, few comprehensive, reliable resources about chemotherapy are available in Spanish online. Chemocare.com now gives Spanishspeaking patients in the United States and around the world easy access to the latest information about chemotherapy drugs, side effects and side effect management during treatment.
The Spanish website includes the same pages as the English version, including survivor stories (including Scott‘s own), information on eating well, complementary medicine and links to other helpful websites (in English). As the Cleveland Clinic Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialists update Chemocare. com, the new information will be translated and added to the Spanish site.
Visitors can go to the Spanish site by clicking on “Espanol” in the upper right corner of the Chemocare.com landing page. For Web surfers who Google “quimioterapia informacion” (chemotherapy information), Chemocare. com in Spanish is returned on the first page of results, ensuring that millions of people will easily find the site. Muy bueno!
