Has your friend told you they created a MyLifeLine site, and you're here to find it? Once you have registered an account, you can search for your friend's private site.

Note: MyLifeLine members have the option to make their site searchable or not. So, only members who choose to be included in the search will show up in your results. If your friend chooses to exclude their site from search, you will need to ask your friend for an invitation link to their site.

Follow these steps to search for your friend’s site:

  1. Log in at: with your email address and password. When you've successfully logged in, you will see "Welcome back, [your name]" in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Go to the My Private Community section in the top left corner. Click the magnifying glass icon.
  3. Enter your friend’s first and last name. Or, if you know it, enter your friend’s community name (e.g.TeamJane).
  4. Look for your friend's site in the search results and click on their profile. Then click “Register to comment” and follow the prompts to send your friend a join request.
  5. Once you are approved by your friend, you’ll be able to leave messages of support, comment on their updates, and volunteer for any Helping Calendar events.

What if I can’t find my friend’s site?

Or if you just want to connect your personal network together to simplify your experience and receive emotional and logistical support from your loved ones, you can create a personal site.
