MyLifeLine.org is a nonprofit organization that provides free webpages to cancer patients and their caregivers with the purpose of communicating with friends and family during the cancer treatment process. Members can post photos, share updates on their health, receive caring messages from friends and family, ask for help with health-related tasks, learn about their unique cancer type, and more. MyLifeLine aims to ease the lives of everyone affected personally by cancer — from diagnosis, through the healing process.
