What Can I Do To Help?
Welcome to My Cancer Circle, a free, private support community for caregivers of people facing cancer. To learn more about this tool and its features, review our step-by-step guide to getting started...
Cancer profoundly affects family members, friends and others who are close to a person diagnosed with cancer. It can be especially difficult and overwhelming for that individual who also becomes the primary caregiver. As a caregiver, you may be juggling multiple tasks, in addition to managing a family, work and other priorities in your own life. You also may have several people asking, "What can I do to help?"
My Cancer Circle is a simple online tool that helps organize the community of people who want to help you. It coordinates their efforts to more efficiently support you and your loved one facing cancer.
You will also find resources provided directly from CancerCare that can help you in your role as a caregiver. Members of your My Cancer Circle community can post words of encouragement and support. You can also post routine updates and information you want to share with your private community circle.
My Cancer Circle was created through a collaboration between Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and CancerCare. My Cancer Circle is supported by Boehringer-Ingelheim (Founding Partner), Amgen, Genentech, Merrimack, Pharmacyclics and Teva Oncology.
