Cancer Support Via Phone
For 25 years and 25,000 matches, Anderson Network's Telephone Support Line has connected cancer patients and their caregivers with others who've been there. From a database of more than 1,700 cancer survivors and caregivers, patients are matched by disease, mode of treatment, and experience. Created by MD Anderson cancer survivors who saw the need for matching patients with survivors whom they can relate. The line is open to patients and cancer survivors who were treated anywhere, and we've made matches around the globe. If you are a patient or caregiver who might benefit from a match, call us at 713-792-2553 or 1-800-345-6324, or e-mail us at email@example.com.
About MD Anderson Network
The Anderson Network is a unique cancer support group of almost 2,000 current and former patients who know just what you're going through, and can offer the right patient-to-patient advice and encouragement when you need it most. Our members are living proof that no matter what your diagnosis and treatment, there is always hope and the chance to live each day fully.
The Anderson Network takes a personalized approach to supporting both cancer patients and caregivers. As a patient network, we will try to match you with a member who has had the same diagnosis and treatment - someone who understands your particular anxieties, questions and fears. Together, we help you through the hard times and celebrate your victories.
The Anderson Network offers more than individualized support. Our resources include:
- A patient and caregiver telephone support line: 800-345-6324
- Weekly educational forums featuring MD Anderson and community experts
- A quarterly newsletter with information of interest to cancer patients and inspirational stories
