Online support and message board forums for breast cancer survivors

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.
