Cancer Companions is a cancer ministry which trains, equips and supports volunteers in churches to draw people coping with cancer closer to Christ. The volunteers are trained to lead three programs: Cancer Prayer Partners, 30 Days of Cancer Prayer and various Bible Studies designed for anyone impacted by cancer. We serve anyone in cancer treatment, post cancer treatment and their loved ones. Cancer Companions believes Jesus is the master at pushing back the chaos of cancer for everyone. As trained facilitators we strive to provide prayer, scripture and companionship as we lift up people on their cancer journey.
Cancer Companions began in 2011 by Christian counselor and author Karen Tripp MS LMFT in St Louis, MO. This came after years of Karen leading Christian cancer support groups around St Louis and thinking "someone" should teach people how to do what she was doing. Then one blustery November day Karen heard the Lord say "I wanted you to start a ministry not write a book." From that moment, Cancer Companions was born. Since then Cancer Companions has developed volunteer training programs, Bible study and devotional video and books as well as the premiere online Christian cancer presence. These scriptural foundation of these Christian cancer materials, the intimate connections of the Cancer Prayer Partner Program as well as the National-wide impact of 30 Days of Cancer Prayer has seen this ministry spread from heart to heart and coast to coast.
