I wish I had a tool like MyLifeLine to help me coordinate the care and support I needed. The Cancer Support Community elevates the MyLifeLine community in a meaningful way by integrating their award-winning cancer education materials and personalizes the resources based on everyone’s unique situation. This new endeavor is a dream come true for me as I have admired the work of Cancer Support Community for decades.”
