Tap into the Power of Social Networking
Social networking can be a helpful tool in organizing assistance when you're dealing with a cancer diagnosis. Here are links to help you get started with three helpful online resources.
CarePages.com offers free Web sites to families coping with cancer and other serious illnesses. Patients can post updates about their condition, share thoughts about how they are feeling and share photographs via the Web site. This can be an especially helpful tool for updating family and friends without having to make many phone calls and repeat the same news.
LotsaHelpingHands.com is a Web site worth knowing. Users can set up a Web site and invite family and friends to view it. Members of your online community can then sign up to volunteer various tasks and activities. It's a simple site that will help you stay organized.
If you need help managing your care, call 800-888-9825 to talk with a U-M social worker.
