Connecting with others who are also fighting cancer can be empowering. Learning from people who have been where you are, or those who are experiencing it for the first time, it can be informative and comforting to know you're not alone. When you need extra support or want to hear how others have endured similar situations, the Cancer Fighters® program is there for you.

Created by City of Hope patients in 1990, this community offers you the opportunity to tap into the experiences from members across the country. Cancer Fighters members are patients, caregivers, friends and family—anyone looking to connect around the idea that no one should fight cancer alone.

The Cancer Fighters program offers support through connection and shared experiences:

Supports you: Share your feelings and challenges with a network of people who have been in your shoes. Through our program, you will meet people who have been touched by cancer to find a source of compassion, and come together to receive comfort, support and hope.

Empowers you: Get answers to your questions from fellow Cancer Fighters. Read and share stories of hope, knowledge and inspiration from fellow patients and caregivers online and on the Celebrate Life® Survivor Tree. Join fun and informative events within our hospitals, local communities and online.

Informs you: Learn together from subject matter experts. Access a wide variety of valuable resources related to your interests throughout your cancer journey. Receive communications throughout the year with useful tips and timely information for every step of your cancer journey.
