Newsletters, Blogs & Cancer Toolkits

The internet provides many opportunities to gain support and strategies to live beyond a cancer diagnosis. Cancer patients, as well as family members and their friends of cancer patients, can use online blogs, newsletters and toolkits to understand the journey of living with cancer as well as learn from other cancer patients/survivors. Social support for cancer patients can work as a buffer against the reactions to the emotional and physical stress experience before, during and after a cancer diagnosis.
