Blog for a Cure has over 6,200 cancer survivors and is growing rapidly. One of the top requests from these survivors was to increase the ability to find other survivors who match their own experience.

On September 8, 2011 Blog for a Cure rolled out an expanded search feature to help cancer survivors find each other. They can now search for other survivors by name, country, state, zip code, stage of cancer, cancer type, surgeries they have undergone and chemotherapies they have taken. They can also search by any combination of the above fields.

For example, they could search for Stage 4 Breast Cancer Survivors who live in Canada who have had a Mastectomy and are taking the chemotherapy Xeloda. One great way of using these results is to find someone with the same type of cancer and same type of chemo and then read their tips on how to deal with the physical effect of chemotherapy and cancer. There is also a section on how to deal with the mental effects of cancer. This new feature will make it much easier for cancer fighters to connect with others who have a similar diagnosis, similar fears and similar questions.

When most people are diagnosed with cancer their mind starts spinning with questions. Blog for a Cure helps answers those questions from fellow cancer fighters. Finding someone who can relate to what they are going through is a great benefit when battling this horrible disease.
