Breast cancer patients turn to #BCSM for support and information
When you are facing a cancer diagnosis, the internet can seem like a vast black hole of information and advice. No matter what your illness, it's important to get information that is backed up by medical evidence. Patients may also benefit from talking to others who are fighting the same battle. Amidst the endless on-line resources for breast cancer patients, many people turn to #BCSM (Breast Cancer Social Media) on Twitter because the organizers of the group insist that all information shared must be backed up by medical evidence. This ensures that patients can get the support they're looking for without being misled by rumors or speculation. The originator of the hashtag and an accompanying blog, Jody Schoger, passed away this week after a brave fight with breast cancer.
