The Cancer Connect Online Moderated Cancer Community: Available Directly or From Your Website
Joining an online community to connect with other cancer patients has become a preferred means of support and access to information. CancerConnect is unique because its communities are secure, moderated, and flexible in order to meet the goals of your organization. Organizations using a CancerConnect Community allow their members to interact within their private community or to become part of a broader national community of over 50,000 cancer patients. The national CancerConnect community is comprised by patients participating directly from CancerConnect, from other leading advocacy groups and from cancer centers across the US. By creating a national network of connected patients, CancerConnect brings the full range of patients’ experiences and information together on a single site and allows organizations to simultaneously have private groups should they desire.

Cancer Connect is currently used by Harvard Dana Farber, Roswell Park, Ohio State, UCSF, Beth Israel-New England Deaconess, Memorial Sloan Kettering, The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, MPNRF and numerous other cancer care providers and advocacy groups.
