“We are excited about using our online platform to enhance the experience of our community members,” explains Alana Brody, VP of social media. “The new Program is specifically designed to respond to requests from our members to communicate directly with cancer experts. We will release a complete schedule of Live Chats with the Experts in September.”

CancerConnect is a fully functional online community and social network that encourages people with cancer and those who care for them to share information, inspiration, hope, and support. CancerConnect combines best-of-class content and news with this online community to enable cancer patients and their caregivers to communicate with each other in a confidential and secure environment.

Owned by OMNI Health Media, CancerConnect has been a leader in providing cancer patients and their families with timely accurate information since 1995. Visitors to CancerConnect have access to comprehensive, current information on all aspects of the management of cancer and the added value of connecting with other patients who share their specific disease, such as breast, colon, prostate, and lung cancer. Disease-specific groups—as well as groups focused on care giving, health and wellness, and nutrition—exist to provide support for anyone affected by a diagnosis of cancer. Members of CancerConnect can access information, ask questions, share experiences, and connect with others who share their issues—all at a single destination. They can also participate in communities with broader concerns like nutrition and spirituality.

CancerConnect is used by hospitals and cancer clinics to enhance their websites and allow cancer patients to be part of an online community without leaving the providers’ website. OMNI Health Media manages the CancerConnect communities for Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and many other leading cancer centers and private clinics. Moreover, through partnerships with the National Patient Advocate Foundation, The Prostate Cancer Research Institute, The Lymphoma Research Foundation, and other advocacy organizations, CancerConnect provides a best-of-class fully moderated social media experience.
