CMF online support groups for patients & caregivers

An important objective of our organisation is to support the emotional health of patients living with mesothelioma, as well as the people that care for them.  Currently, we offer a number of private, invite-only Facebook groups for mesothelioma patients, loved ones and bereaved to connect with one another, share experiences and seek support from others in similar situations.  

To join one of our groups, please follow these steps:

  1. Open a Facebook account if you don't already have one (
  2. Send a private message to the CMF Facebook page or to with the email address used to set up your Facebook account and specifying the group you would like to join (patient or caregiver).
  3. Once you receive your invitation from the CMF to the specified email address, click on the link provided to gain immediate access and membership to the group.  We hope to hear from you soon!

If you are interested in participating in any other type of patient or caregiver support group, please contact us. We will endeavour to develop a support group(s) that addresses the needs of its members in a number of different formats (e.g., face to face meetings, webinars, teleconferences etc.) such that each and every member will receive the support needed.
