Here are the top five CURE® stories for November 2019.

5. Suspending Judgement
Want to support someone during cancer treatment? One survivor and comedian shares her thoughts on why you should offer your ear, not your opinion, in this piece.

4. Preventing Oral Mucositis
Oral mucositis can be debilitating, but here, one expert explains the steps you can take to help mitigate this side effect of radiation and chemotherapy.

3. Anything But “Fine”
When asked how they are, patients with cancer often find it simplest to say that they’re fine. Unfortunately, as one survivor explains in this piece, that may be far from the truth.

2. Getting Under the Skin
In a gel applied directly to the breasts, the anti-estrogen drug tamoxifen may help prevent cancer and fight DCIS — with few side effects. Learn more about it in this story from our Breast Cancer Special Issue.

1. Finding Support Through Social Media
In this exclusive interview, we spoke with news anchor Michelle Velez, who received a stage 4 choriocarcinoma diagnosis after a molar pregnancy, and wants other women to know that they don’t have to take on cancer alone.
