MyLifeLine Cancer Foundation and Cancer Support Community merged in January 2018 to create
a more dynamic and innovative support network for cancer patients and their loved ones.
Together, we will build on our collective mission to ensure no patient faces cancer alone. To learn more,

Create A Support Community
Research shows that support and emotional connections benefit cancer treatment.
Express yourself and allow others to encourage you.
"The social worker at the cancer center introduced us to
MyLifeLine.org as a way to stay connected while we were
three hours from home during treatment. It was wonderful
to keep people updated without having to repeat the same
things over and over." — Debbie, Cancer Caregiver
"I was totally overwhelmed by how much support I had on
MyLifeLine.org. It was huge just knowing there were so many
people who cared about me. The feedback from friends
was encouraging.” — Patricia, Breast Cancer
"My site was the only way to express myself and work through
all of my emotions. MyLifeLine.org was a lifeline for me during
my journey; it was my connection to the world, my connection to
my own self, and a place where I could be encouraged by others.
I am still using the site and will always want it and continue
to share my story." — Paige, Squamous Cell Carcinoma
"Whenever I wanted to reach out to my support group to share
the emotional journey I was travelling, all I needed to was
access MyLifeLine.org. I could compose my message and
experience instant emotional relief. I can honestly say
MyLifeLine.org was critical to my survival." — Dave, Colon Cancer
"I almost look at MyLifeLine.org as part of my husband's treatment.
Whatever happens to him, MyLifeLine.org gets updated.
I felt more connected. I felt the support. I felt the love
from everyone we knew. It changed my whole outlook, truly." — Erma, Cancer Caregiver
"MyLifeLine is such an appropriate name. It really has
been my lifeline. I am grateful to have cancer in this
time and age in social media." — Roberta, Cancer
"We've had people reaching out to us every day through
MyLifeLine.org. It just amazed me. Even though they don't
always comment, you know they're following. In addition,
when you talk to them, they know your whole story and you
don't have to spend time updating them on everything." — Harold, Leukemia
"For me it is a way to condense or consolidate my feelings
and thinkings about my experience so I can share it with
a lot of people without having to hunt them down.
I'm very grateful to stay connected with so many good people." — Stephanie, Metastatic Breast Cancer
"Friends and family from afar were providing solid
support through MyLifeLine.org. I began to understand
how desperately I needed that support. My wife would
let me know when she did updates and when we got
replies and messages. I began to look forward to
the messages and words of encouragement and support." — Shelby, Colorectal Cancer
"I think the technology is amazing. It helps me not only
to receive support but also to give hope around me.
Staying vibrant and positive throughout such a challenge
seems to be inspiring for people. I am delighted that
my experience can be of service that way." — Frederique, Lung Cancer
"I didn't have the energy or patience to call.
MyLifeLine.org was a wonderful thing for people
to write their support to me and as well
as me to get it out." — Dawn, Breast Cancer
"MyLifeLine.org has been source of encouragement for me
because I was able to write my feelings. I felt like
there was a friend actually at my fingertips." — Yvette, Uterine Cancer
