What We Do
Support for Cancer Patients
Cancer survivors of more than 75 different types of cancer volunteer for CanCare and provide free and confidential emotional support and resources to those currently facing a battle with cancer. A patient is matched with a CanCare volunteer based on a variety of criteria including cancer site, treatments, age and gender. Support is provided over the phone and through email.
Support for Family Members
If you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer and you need someone to talk to or need practical advice, CanCare can connect you with a family member of a cancer survivor.
Hospital Visitation Programs
CanCare volunteers regularly visit cancer patients in Atlanta area hospitals through our Hospital Visitation Program. Our volunteers help patients and their family members feel cared for, by serving as a partner to the medical team and offering emotional support beyond their medical needs.
