Call for Submissions for CBCN's New Web Sites


CBCN is currently gathering information to include on two new web sites--one for young women with breast cancer and the other for rural, remote and Northern women and men with breast cancer. Have you found indispensable, "must-share" resources that would benefit others in these areas? Maybe you found an excellent online support group or an informative book, brochure, news article or video; or perhaps there was a web site or resource that helped you learn how the system works or how to find financial assistance. Some of the other areas of interest include resources to help kids, spouses and caregivers and resources to help with employment issues, living healthy, spirituality and isolation. If you found a resource useful, so might someone else. Or maybe there's something that helped you through the hard times. We plan to include sections on these sites where you can share your experiences with others in your breast cancer community.

We'd love to include your information, so please forward your ideas and submissions to Alicia Weiss, Web Site Content and Community Relations Coordinator at or call 1-800-685-8820 x221.
