Hear from our volunteers
No one has to face cancer alone. myCancerConnection is a cancer support community that offers free, one-on-one support. Support is open to patients, caregivers and survivors regardless of where they receive treatment. Trained survivor and caregiver volunteers are available to share their cancer experience with you.
Matches can be requested based on diagnosis, treatment or other related cancer experiences. Whether you are newly diagnosed, in active treatment or moving forward after a cancer diagnosis, volunteers are ready to help.
Support others by sharing experiences and providing hope to others as a trained myCancerConnection phone volunteer. Get started now by completing the volunteer application.
