Cancerbackup has launched a social networking site designed to help people affected by cancer share their experiences and exchange advice and support.
What Now? offers information and the chance to share stories, comments and pictures with other users. Users can keep blogs, join discussion forums, rate information they find elsewhere on the web and keep up to date with news on cancer treatment and research.
According to Cancerbackup, “what now?” is one of the first questions people ask when they are diagnosed with cancer.
“The What Now? network is the first to really embrace patient-to-patient support and information on the web,” said Kim Hardwick, senior nurse at Cancerbackup. “We are really excited about its potential.”
