Cancer with Compassion


You are not alone - let us walk with you on your cancer journey

A Caregiver's Quote


"I see cancer patients as fragile spirits

shimmering before the Lord.

We should treat them

with compassion,

not pity."

Anne Sorenson, caregiver, friend
CwC prayer intercessor 

A diagnosis of cancer changes life forever.  And the journey through treatment is demanding on all levels.  Cancer with Compassion comes alongside the patient or survivor, giving compassion, comfort and hope.  We provide support through this website, counseling, virtual support groups, prayer ministry and special events.  Our outreach is available to any cancer patient or survivor with all types of cancer. To learn more about us, use our Contact Form below or email us at  And be sure to check out the free book - scroll down to "Gold in the Road."

About Cancer with Compassion

At Cancer with Compassion, we believe cancer patients benefit from the support of others who understand the journey.  The same is true for those who care for them - caregivers need support too.  So we provide support groups, classes and special events.  Our support groups now meet via Zoom so anyone, anywhere can join a virtual group!  To be a part of one of our free support groups or to request one-on-one counseling, use the Contact Form above or email us at

Breast Cancer Support Group

Cancer with Compassion now offers a special support group just for women with Breast Cancer. The group meets via Zoom so anyone, anywhere may participate.  We meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 4 pm Pacific (West Coast) Time. For more information, or to receive the Zoom link for the next meeting, email us at or use the Contact Form above.

"Not Alone" Caregiver Group

Cancer with Compassion wants to recognize the sometimes invisible members of the cancer team:  Caregivers.  It's not an easy role to fill and caregivers can feel worn out, overwhelmed and isolated. Like the cancer patient they care for, they need support and the best support comes from other caregivers. So Cancer with Compassion announces "Not Alone," a new support group for Cancer Caregivers. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 5 pm PDT via Zoom - so anyone, anywhere can join. Are you a caregiver? Know someone who is?  Email us at for the Zoom link and password or use the Contact Form above.

"To worship God is not about
a mountain-top experience.
The same declaration made in the
worst and darkest of times
says God is the same God.
To worship in the light is an act of faith.
To worship in the dark is an act of war."
Darlene Zschech
Hillsong Worship Leader, Cancer Survivor
