Personalized Cancer Support Through Cancer Lifeline

October 5, 2020 Meghan Wilkins Melanson, Program Director, Cancer Lifeline

Everyone is impacted by cancer at some point in their lives, either as a patient, family member or friend. Cancer Lifeline helps thousands of people each year cope with cancer through our FREE support groups, classes in nutrition, exercise, creative expression, stress reduction, family dynamics and personalized emotional support through our telephone Lifeline and instant messaging platform, Lifeline Chat. Cancer Lifeline also provides direct financial assistance and resource information. Programs are open to patients from diagnosis through treatment, survivors, families, and friends.
