The Princess Margaret Hospital Breast Cancer Survivorship Program, Canada, in collaboration with community partners and researchers at ELLICSR, developed a national, social networking platform, to provide quality survivorship information and allows cancer survivors to find and chat with other cancer survivors across Canada. Survivors can use this site to access current resources, learn about upcoming survivorship events, take part in chats and discussions and meet survivors just like them.
