Connecting with Cancer

Connecting with Cancer_Nightingale Blog

During these physically-distanced times, we are all making sacrifices to keep ourselves and our friends and families safe. If you are currently battling cancer, these times may be especially difficult. Support groups may not be offering their usual meetings and services in person, and you likely want to stay home and distance yourself from people outside of your bubble. We thought it might be useful to provide a list of bloggers and YouTube accounts by people all over the world who are going through some of the same challenges with cancer treatment. Our hope is that this compilation can help give you a sense of community – a virtual one!
