Now more than ever, women are turning to sources other than their physicians for information and support. I am so very proud to be part of an incredible community, Breast Cancer / Social Media. #BCSM was co-founded in 2011 by breast cancer survivors Jody Schoger (who passed away in 2016) and Alicia Staley and has grown to be one of the premier online support and information sites for anyone affected by breast cancer. Involved from nearly the beginning, I was invited to participate as a co-moderator in late 2011. Our weekly tweetchat usually attracts 75-100 participants including current and former patients, caregivers, physicians, psychologists, nurses, and many others.
