Community Cancer Connections

A Collaborative Resource for Survivors, Caregivers, and Providers

Smart Survivors Guide

Cancer Survivorship Links

These Survivorship resources provide communication forums for all whose lives are touched by cancer - places to share stories, ideas, and insights, and to explore hopes and fears. They fully explore the meaning of Survivorship, and offer social support networks to help people cope more effectively with their cancer journeys. There are many additional sites on Survivorship, and many included in our resource directory, but these are a few that we selected for you:
