Online Chats hosted by Leukemia and Lymphoma Society


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society hosts weekly online chats moderated by an oncology social worker.

Recognizing the needs of cancer patients from the initial phase of diagnosis through treatment decisions and survivorship, the online chats bring non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, chronic myeloid leukemia, myeloma and young adult survivors together to share experiences. The online chats are not a replacement for psychotherapy or support groups.

The live, weekly two-hour online chats provide a friendly forum for registrants. Each chat is moderated by an oncology social worker and is password protected. The role of the moderator/facilitator is to provide support and guide conversation, as needed, throughout the chats. The moderator's role is largely determined by the wants and needs of participants in each chat.

By registering for the chat, participants need to understand and agree to LLS' chat requirements including posting truthful and appropriate comments, staying on topic, listening to and respecting others, and protecting privacy.
