Post diagnosis, I spent a solid 24 hours glued to my computer screen. I didn't have to click many times before I come across sites full of personal opinions, claims of miracle cures and horror stories. If you happen across this site before you've fallen into that trap, I would recommend restricting yourself to a few trustworthy sites to begin with.
Here's a few of my favourites:
General Blood Cancer Resources
An organization close to my heart, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They have a great, easy to use website and support network for blood cancer patients and their families. If you're interested in keeping up to date with progress in the research field their blog translates this from med speak into laymans terms nicely.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
To order and download booklets relating to specific lymphoma diseases, The Lymphoma Research Foundation was where I found my much respected 120 page booklet of all things Hodgkin.
The Lymphoma Research Foundation
The Leukemia Research Foundation is based in Illinois and funds research into blood cancer treatments, causes and cures. They hold blood cancer education forums in the Chicagoland area and may be able to offer financial support to patients and their families located in the region.
A resource for those looking at transplant options and experiences or those looking to get registered on the bone marrow registry Be The Match (National Bone Marrow Donor Program)
Fancy hosting a bone marrow registration drive? www.dkms.org/en/get-involved
Imerman Angels provide connections to one-on-one cancer support amongst cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers.
LIVESTRONG All things survivorship related
The Cancer to 5k program run by the Ulman Foundation helped me mentally and physically get back on track following treatment. Their trainers and running groups help build up your fitness in a pressure free environment. You complete the program by running a 5k at the pace of your choice.
First Descents offer outdoor adventure programs for young adult cancer patients. I went white water kayaking for 7 days in the Smokey Mountains with some of the worlds best professional kayakers and a group of young adult cancer fighters. It was amazing.
Stupid Cancer is a great community for the young adult cancer survivor/fighter.
