how we can help

Connect with our online community

CancerConnection.ca is our online community. It helps people with cancer and cancer survivors, as well as their loved ones and caregivers, connect with others who know what they are going through.

We are available to help you with your cancer support needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For questions about cancer and work, especially during the pandemic, visit cancerandwork.ca.

If you have stopped working because of COVID-19, the Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan may provide you with temporary income support. You can also find financial support by regions that you may qualify for.

No one should have to face cancer alone. Connecting with others who understand your situation and how you feel can help you cope. Knowing what to expect throughout your cancer journey can help you feel more hopeful and less anxious.

CancerConnection.ca is a safe and welcoming place for discussion, support and the exchange of information about managing cancer in your life. It allows people to share their experiences and build supportive relationships.

CancerConnection.ca community members take part in discussions, write their own blogs, join groups and exchange messages offering emotional support and practical advice. Membership in this community is free and open to people 18 years of age and older.

Here are just a few of the topics community members are discussing:

  • stress and waiting for test results
  • coping with hair loss due to chemotherapy
  • talking to children about a cancer diagnosis
  • balancing a career while going through treatment
  • dealing with the emotional stress of caregiving

Trained moderators support the community and make sure that it remains safe and supportive.
