MyLifeLine Announces Merger with Cancer Support Community!
January 2018

Read more about this exciting news in the official press release here. MyLifeLine’s Founder, Marcia Donziger, enthusiastically shares her thoughts about the merger: “I believe this collaboration is a major victory for people impacted by cancer. As a cancer survivor, I know firsthand the stress, anxiety and isolation that cancer inflicts upon patients and their families. MyLifeLine was created as a gift for all patients diagnosed after me. I wish I had a tool like MyLifeLine to help me coordinate the care and support I needed. The Cancer Support Community elevates the MyLifeLine community in a meaningful way by integrating their award-winning cancer education materials and personalizes the resources based on everyone’s unique situation. This new endeavor is a dream come true for me as I have admired the work of Cancer Support Community for decades.”
