Briefs: Share Your Cancer Experience

Network - Summer 2008

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 our adult or pediatric telephone support lines that match patients and caregivers dealing with similar diagnoses and treatment plans. Especially needed are those who have experienced:

  • Proton therapy
  • Mesothelioma
  • Minimally invasive, robotic prostatectomy
  • Advanced gynecologic cancers
  • Penile cancer
  • A clinical trial

In addition, we are looking for:

  • Caregivers of children with cancer
  • Adult survivors of pediatric cancers
  • Those who speak languages other than English, notably Spanish

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.”
