relate to you.

Get free app

Cancer Really Sucks! is
a virtual support group app
for cancer patients and families
to find others who can relate.

How Cancer Really Sucks! works:

1. Answer a few questions about yourself.
2. Get matched, by hand, to 5-8 others who are like you into your own private support group.
3. Chat together about anything you wish. Become friends over time to help each other through rough times or talk about the latest movies you’re watching.

Real people. Real talk.

Cancer Really Sucks! is not anonymous. You build new friendships with others with your same struggle.

Support when you need it.

Cancer Really Sucks! provides chat, self-help resources, and non-profit services so you decide what you’re in need of, when.

Built with care.

Cancer Really Sucks! is built and maintained by 1 person. Meet Levi Bostian. Levi has built Cancer Really Sucks! specifically for you.
