IHadCancer.com is a social network that recently launched in an effort to bring cancer fighters, survivors, and supporters together. The site is similar to Facebook in that it gives users a profile, the ability to share information, friend others, and interact with other users. The difference, however, is that it is geared toward a specific audience.
As Mailet Lopez, the founder of the site and a cancer survivor herself, explained to WebProNews, the site gives users an outlet to connect with others who are currently dealing with the same situation or who have already dealt with it. She hopes the site conveys the message of hope to all those impacted by the disease.
