Newly Diagnosed With Cancer

Speak with other people who are going through what you are.

Next » « Previous


You are not alone. Experience shows that there is nothing quite like speaking with another person who is going through the same thing that you are. In addition to support, people who have been in your situation are a good source of practical information.  If there is no one nearby, you can make contact with people anywhere in the country over the internet or on the telephone.

Your local or national cancer organization can connect you with someone going through a similar situation or with someone who has been there either through a support group and/or with an individual (a "buddy".) You can make connections through your specialist, a social worker or your national or local disease specific nonprofit organization.
