Family and Friends
Support for Family, Friends, and Caregivers
Cancer doesn’t affect only the person with the illness. It affects their family members and friends as well. The Cancer Support Community is here not only to meet the needs of cancer patients and survivors, but also to help the family members and friends who are facing cancer alongside a loved one.
Some family members and friends are direct caregivers. Others might play a more supporting role, helping with meals or children’s carpools. Still other might be providing support from a distance. Regardless of the role you are playing, rest assured that it is having an important impact on your friend or family member facing cancer.
What to Expect: The Cancer Journey
As a family member or friend, you will be accompanying your loved one through their cancer journey. You may join the journey at the start. Or you may be jumping in midstream. These are some aspects of cancer you may encounter.
MyLifeLine exists to easily connect cancer patients and caregivers with friends and family in order to reduce stress, anxiety, and isolation.
By creating your own private website, our goal is to help you find hope, regain control, document your journey, and receive social, emotional, and practical support from friends and family throughout the treatment process and beyond.
