    We have partnered with CancerConnect, a platform of online communities, to bring you into a circle of other cancer patients, survivors, family members, and friends. By joining this community, you can see how others are coping with a challenging disease.

    • Talk with others in a similar situation.
    • Share experiences.
    • Participate any time of day, from anywhere.
    • Learn more about coping with your type of cancer, from patients across the country.
    • Learn more about Dana-Farber, directly from other patients.
    • Take advantage of background information and educational resources.

    How it works

    • You can also participate in Dana-Farber-based communities that include other Dana-Farber patients.
    • Join as many communities as you like.
    • All communities are professionally monitored.
    • You do not need to be a Dana-Farber patient to join.
