Jacksonville, FL/Feb. 5, 2014: A private support community has been created to help families who have been touched by cancer in anyway. The networking site Laughatcancer.ning.com has been created to allow patients, survivors, and families to meet other families facing the same devastating diagnosis. However, with the new blossoming friendships and the social networking in this private support community, families will learn how to cope with cancer’s touch.
“The private support community will allow members to share their journey through cancer’s touch,” stated the Founder, Crystal S. Kauffman. She is a cervical cancer 2B survivor of ten years now and has kept the Laugh at Cancer Support Community alive and growing since 2004. She used the networking feature through Facebook to keep the community alive, after leaving Ning.com in 2012. However, she recently decided to return to Ning.com, in order to offer the private networking feature, which will make it easier for member’s to tell their story.
The networking feature will offer families: support, encouragement, and inspiration from volunteers or other members. As of Feb. 4th, 2014, Mrs. Kauffman reopened the private support community and is excited about its future potential. Every new member will have the opportunity to meet new friends, volunteer in the community, or tell their story to other members. The private support community will allow member honor loved ones, start a discussion, join a group, or keep a daily blog.
In the future, she hopes the private support community will continue to grow, while raising awareness and celebrating the beauty of life. Mrs. Kauffman believes that laughter will help drive the cancer blues away. However, once the members begin networking with each other, friendships will begin to blossom into laughter and love for one another. Therefore, she would like to invite everyone to join us, especially those who have been touched by cancer or want to become a volunteer.
