Cancer with Compassion

We are with you on your cancer journey

A diagnosis of cancer changes life forever.   And the journey through treatment is demanding on all levels.  A cancer support group can provide practical help and give needed comfort, hope and encouragement.  Cancer with Compassion provides virtual support groups which are available to any patient or survivor to join from the comfort of their own home.  All are welcome - women and men with all types of cancer.  

"Cancer Compassion Without Borders," our virtual support groups usually meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays and the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at 1 pm PDT.  Have a computer, other device or Smartphone?  You can join our meetings!  To learn more about our virtual cancer support group meetings, contact founder Cathie Young at 949.279-1246 or email us at cancerwithcompassion@gmail.com. 

Our Second-Annual Cancer Composium Will Go Virtual this Year! 

About Cancer with Compassion

Cancer with Compassion began when founder Rev. Cathie Young was diagnosed in December, 2011

with advanced, invasive breast cancer.  She spent all of 2012 in treatment to save her life.

While in treatment, Rev. Cathie discovered a desire to reach out to others who were in their own cancer storm.

In January 2013, she put up a yard sign at her home which read, "Cancer Support This Thursday."

She was amazed when more than 20 people, mostly from the neighborhood showed up. 
This was the beginning of Cancer with Compassion, a faith-based community outreach that

 has affected the lives of many cancer patients and survivors.


At Cancer with Compassion, we believe that cancer patients benefit from the support of others
who understand the journey.  We are passionate about 
come alongside cancer patients and survivors

to ease their burden and to share compassion, comfort and hope. 


Before the COVID-19 pandemic, our support groups in both California and Oregon met in person.

But while in quarantine, we discovered the benefits of meeting online via Zoom.
With Zoom, our sick patients can stay at home in their pajamas!
With Zoom, our group members can call in from anywhere, like Taiwan -- which has happened!

And so, until it is very safe to meet in person again, we will continue to host virtual support groups.


"Gold in the Road" is a moving memoir which

shares the story of Cancer with Compassion's founder

Rev. Cathie Young's own cancer journey.

Sharing with authenticity and keen spiritual insight,

Rev. Cathie brings valuable information about cancer 

and the way it affects both body and soul. 


"Gold in the Road is a beautifully written, imperative read

for anyone who yearns to face life's toughest problems

without being swallowed up by them."
