This free social network exists to empower cancer patients and caregivers through an online support community of family and friends to foster connections, inspiration, and healing through free, personalized websites. On their personal webpages, constituents will be able to share updates and photos with selected family and friends in one secure place; get the help they need by organizing meals, rides to treatment, and more through the Helping Calendar; feel empowered by messages of love and support from friends and family; and review and share cancer resources vetted by experts.
