Now more than ever, women are turning to the online space for information and support. I am so very proud to be part of an incredible virtual support community, #BCSM (breast cancer social media). #BCSM is the longest-running cancer support community based on Twitter, and was co-founded in 2011 by breast cancer survivors Alicia Staley and Jody Schoger (who died due to metastatic breast cancer in 2016). Involved from nearly the beginning, I was invited to participate as a co-moderator in late 2011. Our weekly tweetchats attract participants from around the world, and topics range from various aspects of survivorship to medical meeting summaries and everything in between.
The BCSM Community website has more information.
