Re: A personal website for patients and caregivers

Although, there are numerous web sites around allowing you to communicate with family and friends while undergoing treatments I found this one to be one of the best offered.

MyLifeLine.org is a  nonprofit organization that encourages cancer patients and caregivers to create free, customized websites. Their mission is to empower patients to build an online support community of family and friends to foster connection, inspiration, and healing.
     Streamline communication with family and friends
     Families can easily build their online support community to share information on their terms via one central website.
     By updating friends once, the family reserve more energy for healing.
     Family and friends appreciate getting the latest information without being intrusive.
    Families aid their own healing process by expressing what they are feeling and experiencing.
     Families can keep in touch with pictures of their cancer experiences or fun photos of family and friends.
     Families know they are loved with caring messages from family and friends.
    Families can ask for help on the Helping Calendar for meals, transportation, etc. *Differentiator from other services similar to ours*
    Families  can ask for help financially through the Giving Angels Page *Differentiator from other services similar to ours*
