Focus: The other messageboard I am routinely part of is a Hodgkins Lymphoma support forum. When my sister first got sick (and the second time) I really wasnt sure where to turn for answers. I knew nothing about the benefits of different treatment methods, how to deal with the emotional rollercoaster, and just how to approach the situation altogether. Reaching out to others on there has been extremely informative and comforting to talk to other people going through the same thing or who have family members that are. Now that my my sister is just about done treatment for good (hopefully), I try and reach out to others who were in the same situation I was when it started. That board is probably one of the most genuinely supportive Ive found on the web. Alt. Focus: Its been very positive for me. The information Ive received from others has greatly helped prepare me and my family on what to expect with each step. I dont take the medical advice I find on there and give it back to my sister or anything, Ill leave that to her doctors. But the rest of the stuff has been, for the lack of a better word, soothing.
