Guest Post Guidelines

These Terms and Conditions explain our requirements and the terms and conditions for submitting and publishing guest posts on Cancer Care News.

This policy is effective January 9, 2018 and updated March 20, 2023.

If you are a subject-matter expert and you are as passionate as we are about helping cancer patients through the journey, we would love to hear from you. We accept inquiries from credentialed professionals who can write credible, well-researched articles that not only inform but also provide our readers with positive, actionable steps.

Article Length

We’re not about the word count. It takes what it takes to communicate your message effectively, however, most of our articles average 1000-1500 words. We’re looking for writing that’s 100% original and chock-full of current, credible, relevant information that benefits our readers.

Article Quality

The article must be well researched from credible sources. It should be fully formatted with correct grammar, tone, and spelling. You should include relevant SEO information including meta description and optimized headings.


Some of the topics our readers are interested in include breaking news on cancer treatments and clinical trials as well as screening programs, nutrition and exercise guidelines, sample fitness regimens, meal prep, time savers, legal help, money savers, stress reducers and other better-living tips useful to cancer patients before and after diagnosis. Check out our blog to get an idea of the types of posts our readers use to help in their daily lives and get in touch if you think you have something unique to offer. It’s also a good idea to make sure we haven’t already covered the topic several times recently. We do not accept for consideration any cartoons, fiction, poetry, politically-themed or anonymous articles.

We do not publish anything that appears elsewhere on the web. If we publish your post on Cancer Care News, we retain the rights to that content.
