A Survivor By Your Side

Providing Hope to Those Facing Cancer

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.

Stay connected, be inspired, and support others.
