 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
  • Weekly educational forums featuring MD Anderson and community experts 
  • A quarterly newsletter with information of interest to cancer patients and inspirational stories
  • And more! Be sure to click on Support Programs to view a complete list of programs available through Anderson Network
