Dana-Farber CancerConnect


Online Communities

Join online conversations about living with cancer by signing up for Dana-Farber CancerConnect. You can safely express your thoughts, pose questions, voice concerns, or just read what others have to say.

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.



CancerConnect offers you the opportunity to:

  • 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

  • Registering with CancerConnect is fast, free, and confidential.
  • Join a community focused on a diagnosis (such as lung cancer) or a situation (such as being a parent of a child with cancer).
  • 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.
