I am a cancer survivor who took control of his cancer because of articles, studies, blogs and forums I read on the Internet. Simply put, I learned to manage my cancer through social media. PeopleBeatingCancer.org is a tool to provide social networking for cancer survivors and caregivers. Learn about your cancer from articles, studies, blog and forum posts. Share with fellow survivors and caregivers on the forum.

PeopleBeatingCancer is an amazing resource that can help folks with cancer, and their caregivers, sift through the vast amounts of information available, to find the the nuggets of guidence that can save and extend lives. In 1997, David Emerson, the founder, was given 6-12 months to live and he began digging for answers -- he found them and today David is going strong. PeopleBeatingCancer is there to help others do the same. The Galen Foundation is an amazing resource, please help spread the word to those we can help.
