New York, NY (PRWEB) December 8, 2004 Â Today, Weblogs Inc., the largest publisher of professional blogs, announced the launch of their 63rd Weblog Â TheCancerBlog, based on recent advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
ÂCancer is complex, the treatments are complex and the emotions are complex. I know having as much data as possible was a great help to my family when my mom foughtÂand wonÂher battle with cancer,Â comments Weblogs, Inc. co-founder Jason McCabe Calacanis.
TheCancerBlog is launching with two knowledgeable bloggers. Dr. Leonardo Faoro, who was born in Brazil and received his medical degree from Universidade Federal do ParanÃ¡ (http://www.ufpr.br), the oldest medical school in Brazil.

As a healthcare professional for almost 30 years, Catherine has seen the healthcare industry change dramatically. "I believe that the most dramatic forceÂand the force with the most potential for significantly improving the quality and delivery of healthcare servicesÂhas been technology, particularly information technology (IT) and telecommunications, including the Internet," explains Catherine.
