We are the Cancer Support Now community.
We come from everywhere.
We come in all colors, sizes, shapes and ages. On the surface, we may seem to have nothing in common. Dig a little, and you’ll find that we share a special bond that transcends our wide diversity. Each of us has been affected by cancer. We are survivors and caregivers. Some of us have been cast in both roles. Each of us has a story to tell, and together, our stories form a rich tapestry of caring and support that has been woven together through our connections to Cancer Support Now and to one another.
Are you a cancer survivor or do you love and care for someone who is a cancer survivor? Have you called our Helpline to get support and resources? Are you a support group member or facilitator? Have you attended a Cancer Support Now conference?
We offer our Helpline, support groups, and conference free to everyone. But we can only continue to do this thanks to donations from those who value our services. Any amount helps! Please donate today!
If you would prefer to donate your time, we are always seeking new board members and volunteers. Please contact the Helpline if you are interested.
