Or, do you just want some companionship?,” says Joy Huber, cancer survivor, motivational speaker and author of Cancer with Joy: How to Transform Fear into Happiness and Find the Bright Side Effects. “With some soul-searching you may find that you're simply seeking someone to offer you support, and there are lots of places you can get free one-on-one cancer support without dating or entering into an intimate relationship.” For starters, try Imerman Angels or Cancer Support Community.
