Cancer survivor social media is a new scheme run by volunteers including cancer survivors, healthcare professionals and researchers looking into the long-term effects of cancer treatment. Most of our volunteers are physically located in Toronto, Canada – but we hope that this will be a global scheme.
More people are surviving cancer than ever before and we firmly believe that the best way to shape what the future looks like for those who have had cancer is for everyone involved to work together to figure out what is important and what our focus should be.
Central to our scheme will be a short live presentation hosted by a person involved in survivorship research, healthcare or advocacy, followed by a tweet-chat facilitated by our presenter.
We are still finding our feet and figuring out exactly how we will make this work, so we hope you will follow along for the ride and we will be posting exciting updates as soon as possible.
