While family, friends and healthcare providers can all provide important emtional support when dealing with a cervical cancer diagnosis or HPV disease, it can also help to talk with others who have gone through similar experiences and share your questions and concerns. NCCC is pleased to offer two options for patient support.
Phone and E-mail Pals
NCCC's Phone and Email Pals Program matches cervical cancer patients and survivors with others who are now living with or have experienced similar circumstances, such as disease type or treatment regimens. Once the match is made, the new Phone or Email Pals are free to contact each other for support, encouragement and, above all, hope.
Online Support Community
The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC), in partnership with Inspire, is proud to present our cervical cancer/HPV online support community. Through this community you will join thousands of patients and caregivers in sharing personal experiences in a safe, secure environment.
We hope you will feel empowered to ask questions, share stories and, most importantly, feel reassured that you are not alone.
The NCCC community at Inspire is a valuable resource for so many. Here's a comment from one of our community members on what the support group means to her:
"Thank you so very much for providing the Inspire platform for us to share information with and comfort each other! I have learned a lot from others about what to expect with my cervical cancer in just a few short weeks on this site. I am so happy to have found it!
It's easy to join--just visit the NCCC Inspire site and join today.
