What is CSN?
The Cancer Survivors Network (CSN) is a community of cancer survivors, families and friends. The lives of CSN members have been affected by cancer in ways only those who have “been there” can truly understand.

This site is completely non-commercial and provides a private, secure way to find and communicate with others who share your interests and experiences. In order to protect your privacy, you may remain anonymous in the CSN community if you wish. You control all personal identifiers.

The Cancer Survivors Network was created by and for cancer survivors and cancer caregivers 18 years and older. It’s a peer-support community in which members contribute all content. They tell their stories, share practical tips, and support one another. Member contributions reflect their own personal views, feelings, and experiences. The goal of the CSN is to maintain a warm and welcoming community marked by compassion and mutual respect. Medical advice is prohibited.

Site content is not endorsed by the American Cancer Society. CSN users are encouraged to refer to the American Cancer Society Web site at www.cancer.org or call our National Cancer Information Center at 1-800-227-2345 for credible medical information. CSN content is not a substitute for medical advice and users should always consult qualified healthcare providers with questions and concerns about their medical condition.
