In Which I Give A Shout Out

I don't normally post on Tuesdays, but this is sort of a special case scenario. My good blog-friend Snotty has been working with a team of like-minded individuals on a new site for a while now, and it is officially launching today. She's asked me and a few others for help in getting the word out about it.

The site is called Navigating Cancer, and it's a site devoted to giving information and support to those who have cancer, have loved ones who have cancer, or know someone with cancer. As she mentioned to me in an e-mail about the site, just about everyone knows someone who either has or had cancer, or has supported someone with it. It's an almost universal subject, and this site offers some great tools. 

On the site you can create a profile and share your own story with cancer or supporting someone with it, or you can just read the stories of others who have gone through the tumultuous journey. It's all about reaching out to others and supporting people in the time of their greatest need. It's much easier to go through something difficult when you have support, and this site does just that.

If you have a moment, check it out. I think it's a great idea, and I wish the site all the success it deserves.

That's awesome! The site looks great too - I'm going to forward it to a few friends and relatives of mine! And I echo Melanie's sentiments - it's amazing what people don't know about cancer.
