Welcome to CancerCare's Online Community!
This online community is a creative way to connect with others, gather and provide support and obtain information all while within the comfort of your own home.
What makes us different from other message boards is that each of CancerCare
's online support groups is facilitated by a professionally licensed oncology social worker. Your group facilitator will be reading all of your posts regularly and will highlight some of the common threads he/she sees within your conversations with one another. Your facilitator will reply to unanswered questions and/or concerns as needed, especially if they have not been addressed by other group members within a few days. As an oncology social worker, he/she will be able to offer guidance or relevant resources that may be helpful to the group. Additionally, your group facilitator will be available to you as a contact person here at CancerCare
should you need additional support.
