    Skin cancer - melanoma, what online resources did you find the most helpful?

    We need your help again. We're working to improve our resources page and want to know, What online resources did you find the most helpful? For example, did you google your diagnoses? What cancer sites did you find? Did you look for financial resources, help with prescriptions, help with treatment expenses? Travel expenses, or a treatment center? Give us the run down of the first 48 hrs after you were diagnosed that you spent online. What did you want to know? And did you find it?

    With this information we can develop more resources for our fellow WhatNexters to help them find the help they are looking for, as quickly as possible. Give your tips and resources you found helpful and we may use your information in our articles to help others in the future.
