· Amber Bauer, ASCO staff

With the start of 2014, we can’t help but reflect on what a fantastic year 2013 was for Cancer.Net—a record-breaking number of visitors, two awards for online health/medical information, the release of our app in Spanish, and of course, continuing to provide timely, reliable, comprehensive information to people with cancer and those who care about and for them.

To give you a taste of the year that was and whet your appetite for what’s to come, we thought we’d share what turned out to be our most popular articles, podcasts, and recommendations from 2013. Enjoy!
