A Survivor By Your Side
Providing Hope to Those Facing Cancer
Ways to Get Involved With CanCare
Support for Those Who Have or Had Cancer
CanCare matches people currently facing a cancer diagnosis with a cancer survivor to offer support as you navigate your treatment and the life changes that come with your diagnosis. We also match cancer caregivers with those that have walked the path of loving and caring for someone with cancer.
Our services include:
- Support from a survivor or caregiver
- Online Support Groups
- Healthcare Partner Visitation
Volunteer To Share Your Recovery Experience
Cancer patients and caregivers are matched with a volunteer who has survived the same or similar type of cancer to receive one-on-one positive encouragement and hope from someone who understands firsthand what they are going through.
Join our community of volunteers and offer support through our One-On-One Support Program or our Healthcare Partner Visitation Program.

You Are Not Meant to Endure Cancer Alone
Cancer is hard, but it doesn’t have to be lonely.
CanCare envisions a world where no one faces cancer alone. We provide hope and healing to the cancer community by ensuring anyone facing cancer can have a survivor by their side. Our 500+ trained volunteers walk alongside those facing cancer as they navigate treatment and the life changes that come with a cancer diagnosis.
Whether you need or want to give encouragement, CanCare is the place for you! Support is available over the phone, via text, email and in person – one time or on an ongoing basis.
Founded by Anne Shaw Turnage, a survivor of colon cancer, CanCare has grown into a network of trained volunteers including survivors, caregivers of survivors and medical professionals who provide emotional support and cancer-related resources. Survivors of more than 75 different types of cancer are the heartbeat of the organization, providing hope, friendship and hospital visitations for those facing cancer.
