The CareLife website was created in 1994 after the controversy arising from the creation of OncoLink in 1993, a website created by Dr Buhle while he was on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. This was one of the first healthcare web sites focusing on all aspects of cancer (e.g. basic and clinical research, patient care, quality of life, etc) appealing to a wide audience of patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, worried well and interested people. While OncoLink has prospered and achieved the original mission beyond Dr Buhle's wildest dreams, some of the information that was deemed controversial in 1994 needed a new home. The initial focus of CareLife was to provide a home for this information. Indeed, much of the content on this website is an archive of manuals, web sites from people who have passed on, etc.
This website will be retired shortly. It has served its purpose and is no longer getting much traffic.
