Share cancer experience:

Would you be willing to share your cancer experience with a newly diagnosed patient? If so, call the Anderson Network at 713-792-2553 or 800-345-6324 and find out about becoming a member of the telephone committee that matches patients and caregivers dealing with similar diagnoses and treatment plans. Especially needed are those who have experienced any of the following treatments or cancers:

  • Proton therapy
  • Minimally invasive, robotic prostatectomy
  • Various types of breast reconstruction
  • Advanced gynecologic cancers
  • Stomach cancer
  • Penile cancer
  • Clinical trial experience

In addition, the Network is seeking those who speak languages other than English, notably Spanish, and caregivers of children with cancer as well as adult survivors of pediatric cancers for the new Pediatric Caregiver Telephone Support Network. Your story and willingness to listen could make the difference in another person’s ability to cope with this life-threatening illness. The Anderson Network motto is “Sometimes the best help comes from someone who’s been there.”
