You Are Not Meant to Face 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. If you want or need encouragement, CanCare is the place for you. Whether you are in Texas or any of the other 49 states, emotional support is available over the phone, via text, email and in person – one time or on an ongoing basis.

Who We Are

One on One Cancer Support Community

Founded by Anne Shaw Turnage, a survivor of metastatic colon cancer, CanCare has grown into a network of trained volunteers including survivors and caregivers of survivors who provide emotional support and cancer-related resources. Survivors of more than 60 different types of cancer are the heartbeat of the organization, providing hope, friendship and hospital visitations for those facing cancer.
