We provide here links to country-specific cancer advocacy and support groups in Asia that may in certain instances better cater to the needs of local patients than international organizations. Whenever an association publicizes its services in a language other than English, we also include an English summary of their services that may be useful to English-speaking visitors or residents. Cancer associations and support groups listed here have been selected because they state to provide practical, free-of-charge help to cancer patients and their families. However, it is important to note that none of the associations herein are affiliated in any way with the Cancer Epigenetics Society, nor does their listing here constitute and endorsement by the Cancer Epigenetics Society. Please also note that all information herein was current at the time of its entry, and this may still or not be the case. Please take the time to verify any information provided here directly on the cancer charity of interest webpages at the time of your visit. You may access any of these resources by clicking on the name of the association. You may also jump directly to the country of interest by clicking on the corresponding flag.

Similarly to all other resources provided by the Cancer Epigenetics Society, please visit us often as we keep adding more entries to this page. Please do write to us at info@ces.b2sg.org under the Subject line: Advocacy & Support Groups, should you think that a cancer advocacy or support group would be useful to list here. Finally, we do our best to select only groups and associations that offer free services, please report to us if this is not the case for any of the associations listed here.

This resource would not have been possible without the work and dedication of many volunteers. In particular, the Cancer Epigenetics Society is deeply grateful to Dr. Jozef Ban, Daria Biryukova, Cristina Oliveira Bousbaa, Sara Bousbaa, Dr. Argyro (Iro) Fourtouna, Mehmet Gökgöz, Dr. Isabelle Herbauts, Isabella Hübscher, Raquel Judith Martinez, Prof. Francine Mawet, Andrea Neudolt, Mahmut Orucoglu, Petya Penelova, Patricija Rajšp, Silvia Vargas, and Simona Winkler; with our heartfelt thanks and appreciation!

We hope you find these resources helpful.
