What kind of advice and support can you provide me and my family members?
MD Anderson has a number of support programs and groups for patients, caregivers and family members. View a list of supportive programs and support groups at MD Anderson.
One of our larger support programs is myCancerConnection, which consists of current and former cancer patients and caregivers. The volunteers are there to help by answering patient and caregiver questions and providing understanding when it is needed. Because the volunteers are cancer patients or caregivers themselves, they may have had similar experiences.
The staff of myCancerConnection will work to connect you with a volunteer (patient or family member) who has had a similar experience as yourself.
