    What online "tools" do you use to help deal with cancer?

    There are many resources available, from fundraising platforms to scheduling meals/rides, etc. to online diaries that help keep others up to date on your status - plus so much more. Please let us know what websites you use and how they have been able to help you. Maybe they'll be able to help someone else, too!

      I go to the Dana-Farber website since my friend and I support the Jimmy Fund. There is quite a bit of information there. Also, I am on the Sarcoma Alliance website that has a chat on Wednesdays and Sundays. That site is devoted to my type of cancer, and we exchange advice and help much as we do here.

      My #1 stop is Whatnext. Other than this, I go to...

      1) "HUGE fan" of A Lotsa Helping Hands™ caregiving coordination community, www.lotsahelpinghands.com
      I blog from here, ask help, upload picture, and have a get together with people who care about me.
      2) My DS apps (My Dietary Supplements), to manage my every increasing list...
      3) Side effect tracker sheets, provided from this website under resource section - I use this, so I know which one I should report to my Onc.
      http:[email redacted]
      4) Google! to find additional discussion boards for very specific questions
      5) www.myuhc.com insurance portal to keep my records straight.

      I go to the ovarian cancer message board on Cancer Survivors Network which is part of ACS. The women on this board have been a Godsend to me. The support and information I have received there is immeasurable. I also check in here almost daily.

      I spend a fair amount of time on the Cancer Concerns forum at hystersisters.com. It's a great resource for anyone being treated for endometrial, ovarian, or cervical cancer--really any cancer or precancer of the female reproductive system.
