Cancer In Common.com
A New Social Network For Cancer Patients Launched
October 10, 2012.
‘Cancer In Common.com’ – A Social Network for anyone touched by cancer.
SUPPORT COMMUNITY FOR CANCER PATEINTS TO CONNECT WITH SURVIVORS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The new community website will enable anyone touched by cancer to connect with survivors. It allows users to search, connect and then communicate privately with other members, based on their cancer type, age and location.
Chris Geiger said “I’m really excited about the launch of this website. Since the release of ‘The Cancer Survivors Club’ book, I’ve received an almost constant stream of emails from cancer patient’s asking about various treatments, advice or asking to speak with survivors with a similar cancer to themselves.”
Cancer patients and their family and friends, want to hear firsthand accounts from real survivors about how they overcame the disease. When first diagnosed with cancer, many people feel shocked, alone and even embarrassed.
“I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 24. I had an amazing supportive family and network of friends. However at times I still felt isolated and naturally very worried.” Chris Geiger said.
The ‘Cancer In Common.com website will ultimately provide a safe private haven, where cancer survivors can use their experience to help, support and inspire those recently diagnosed or receiving cancer treatment. The website provides members with the ability to search, connect and communicate - offering firsthand advice and knowledge. Chris Geiger’s hope is this will become a vital free online resource for those affected by cancer.
“I wanted to read real stories from other cancer patients who had fought the same cancer as me and survived.” Chris Geiger said. “This was my original inspiration behind writing ‘The Cancer Survivors Club’ book. But now with the internet evolving, the ‘Cancer In Common.com website is the next natural progression in my personal campaign to help anyone dealing with the disease.”
Unfortunately cancer affects everyone; worldwide there are around 12.7 million new cases diagnosed each year. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.
Many cancer patients and those around them find the grueling treatments very hard to cope with, they often feel very alone and isolated. Connecting cancer patients with survivors has been a frequent request since The Cancer Survivors Club book was published.
Experienced cancer survivors and medical professionals can register, and instantly help, encourage and support those affected by the disease. Members can find, connect and share interesting and inspirational information which helps patients and those around them during and after their treatment.
