For some breast cancer patients and survivors, trying to find a support group to network with other people in their shoes is necessary but scary. There is the fear of opening up to complete strangers or the inability to travel to a group meeting. There also may be confusion as to where to look to find a local support group.
An online support group can make taking that first step easier. The following are a list of some message boards and support groups to try.
Breast Cancer Support
Breastcancer.org discussion forums
The American Cancer Society's Cancer Survivor Network offers one for breast cancer survivors
Living Beyond Breast Cancer
Susan G. Komen for the Cure Forums
Young Survival Coalition
Breast Cancer Care
