Network - Fall 2011

Share Your Experience With Others

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 telephone support line that matches patients and caregivers dealing with similar diagnoses and treatment plans.

Especially needed are those who have experienced:

  • adrenocortical carcinoma,
  • advanced gynecologic cancer,
  • gastric cancer,
  • gallbladder cancer,
  • penile cancer, and
  • sarcoma (particularly leiomyosarcoma).

In addition, we’re looking for:

  • those who speak languages other than English, especially 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.”
