About My Cancer Family

We created My Cancer Family to help all cancer patients, their family and friends navigate the confusing and challenging word of cancer. You have amazing doctors and nurses in charge of your medical care, but there is so much more to the journey. And we are here for that. For resources on nutrition and mental health, to information on amazing non-profits, to sharing the wisdom you only get from having been on the cancer journey (i.e. why your nose always runs.)
