So, I am sat here, like I do… Thinking how can I get this going faster to help people! I know it will take a month to get the community hub off the ground…
So, I set up a Facebook group to get us started with helping each other!
Your thinking well what is it for aren’t you! Well it is for anyone who want’s to find help in awful and scary time, not just for people with cancer. There are thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people who feel forgotten or low.
Lets make them have all feel loved by showing some love in the community, this is not just about me now. It is about everyone else who is in this with me. If YouTube has taught me anything it’s that a small army can make you feel very loved and wanted.
That small army of Lumpkins have made me feel very much accepting of my circumstances and problems, they have also made me realise that even the smallest comment can make someones day.
I am a programmer by trade and have a set plan for this website and the community.
What Will The Community Be?
The community will be a hub where you can interact, support and help each other no matter what the struggle is. No matter what you are going through and no matter what walk of life you are from.
A hub for all, and all for one 🙂 The lot of ya will hopefully interact nicely and help everyone.
How Will It Work?
Well that would be telling but it will intelligently match individuals with other individuals that have the same problems, issues or may be of help to you. Think a dating website but for support, a beautiful use of technology to help others.
So, how will that help you? Well if you are a carer, patient, or just interested then you will be able to get all the help and support that you need for people in the same boat as you.
Say you post about an osteosarcoma, you will be matched to others with osteosarcomas, not all but the few that have the same concerns or worries as you. The sysytem will intelligently match people based on set preferences, but you can always help everyone in the community 🙂
This is not going to be a forum, this is a social network to support eachother, this is going to be for the people by the people 🙂
Will It Cost Anything?
Nope, we will have a donation link on the site as we do on this website now as I do all this as I want to help people and if they would like to support and help with this please feel free to donate to help with the upkeep of the website, vlogs and community.
Why Do This?
Well… I have had very little support or idea about cancer, I actually knew nothing about it when I was diagnosed and realised very quickly that so many other people didn’t understand either, I feel that awareness is key for everyone!
