One of MBCC’s primary goals is to provide access to online support groups where Canadians with MBC, (as well as family, supporters and early-stage individuals) can connect with and support one another and share information. In a country as vast as ours, social media is an essential tool for connecting individuals who live in isolated areas. Even those living in urban areas can find the MBC diagnosis isolating in of itself. Frustrated by the proliferation of U.S.-based Facebook groups, several Canadians have started Facebook support groups exclusively for Canadians with MBC:
Living With Metastatic Breast Cancer in Canada
A closed group with a questionnaire from admin for membership approval, to ensure privacy and confidentiality.
Metastatic Breast Cancer Advocacy in Canada
Metastatic Breast Cancer Advocacy in Canada. 489 likes · 193 talking about this. Metastatic Breast Cancer Advocacy in Canada – keeping Canadian MBC advocates and allies informed on important issues.
As these FB Groups provide a safe place for Canadians with MBC to share and discuss sometimes intensely personal information, most are closed groups. You may (or may not) be contacted by the group Administrator and asked to complete a questionnaire prior to being permitted to join.
