My Life Line

What if you could reach everyone who is important in your life at the same time? Loved ones, family members, friends?  Well, now you can! By using MyLifeLine, our new communications solution, you can send out messages, coordinate schedules, exchange information and make sure everyone is on the same page about treatment, activities and support needs. It’s a great way to keep everyone informed and in touch—plus, it’s free, secure, confidential and specifically for anyone impacted by cancer.

Open to Options

If you are facing a cancer treatment decision, Cancer Support Community’s Open to Options™ specialists can help you get the most out of your doctor’s visit and help you talk more openly with your health care team about the things that really matter to you in your cancer treatment. In a brief one-hour session, an Open to Options™ specialist can help you develop a personal list of questions and concerns to explore with your doctor and to develop the best treatment options for you. To schedule a session with an Open to Options™ specialist please contact Shannon La Cava, Psy.D. at 310-314-2564 or Individuals must first attend an Orientation Meeting.

No one should have to face cancer alone. The Cancer Support Community is here to help you by offering free support and counseling for cancer patients or their loved ones by phone and online.
