Member Support

Our Member Support program is casual. We offer you the chance to make friends with others who understand exactly what you’re going through.  You might bond over breakfast talking about your diagnosis, or you might not talk about cancer at all. Either way, you can enjoy hanging out with other members for a day at the beach, catching a game, or attending local events. While family and friends can be a great support system, they can’t always relate to the physical and emotional changes you go through after being diagnosed. From day one, Live for Today members share an instant bond and create genuine friendships.

What to Expect

Group events are held every 4 to 6 weeks. These events are not physically demanding and typically include a meal and activity. Members will be contacted via email and Facebook about upcoming group events. Apply now to become a member!

In order to participate in our Member Support program you must:

  • Have been diagnosed with any form of cancer
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 35
