Sparta, NJ (PressExposure) August 21, 2008 -- Online social networking platform CancerDiscussion.com (www.cancerdiscussion.com) has extended its reach into the lives of cancer patients, families and friends with a contemporary, fresh re-design of their online community.
The website, designed to bring cancer patients and their loved ones together with other cancer patients, survivors and their families from around the world, has undergone a dramatic graphic and navigational overhaul to make the site more user friendly and to encourage increased participation from its members.
CancerDiscussion.com (www.cancerdiscussion.com) was established in November 2006, providing information, advice and support to cancer patients, their friends and loved ones. With interactive forums, informative resources and frequently updated blogs, CancerDiscussion.com has provided a much needed life-line of support to cancer patients across the world.
President and CEO of CancerDiscussion.com Stan Spaeth believes the redesign will have a tangible impact on how effective CancerDiscussion.com can be in helping those diagnosed with cancer find hope and peace of mind.
"There's no doubting that cancer is a serious issue, and a positive diagnosis can often leave patients feeling upset, anxious and alone. At CancerDiscussion.com, we've created a friendly, welcoming community to offer advice and support to those diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones, to really reach out and deliver that much needed helping hand"
"Our redesign will play a significant role in improving the feel and usability of our community for cancer patients and their loved ones across the world. By combining a more aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-use design with additional features, we feel our community will benefit from being more able to communicate and interact freely with others from all corners of the globe."
The redesign, along with the integration of more social features such as blogs and forums, went live as at Friday 8th August, and has already been met with a positive response from members old and new. By working with the needs of the community, CancerDiscussion.com has created a more usable space for patients and their loved ones to communicate and find support with other patients and survivors.
