    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Only your doctor can make an accurate diagnosis. Please do not wait any longer in seeing your doctor. IF it is cancer the longer you wait the more extensive the treatment and the possibility of it spreading through your body.
