Leukemia Support

Sometimes the best support comes from other people who have lived through the same experience. Making contact with people who have leukemia—or their family members—may be a comfort to many. Fortunately, the Web provides access to leukemia support through message forums and lists that allow those affected by leukemia to interact with each other.

Insights for Leukemia Support

  • The most active message forums tend to be those on larger organization or medical Web sites. They're the best place to go for information and news. Smaller message boards may offer more personal support, as many participants are longstanding members who have become Internet friends.
  • If you prefer direct, in-person contact for leukemia support, many of these Web sites also include resources to help you find local leukemia support groups. Try looking for a subject or thread about "Local Groups" or your specific state.
