Realshare is the new social network for young people with cancer, aged 16-25, who live in the South West.
You may not get to meet many other young people in your situation where you are, so realshare gives you a chance to link up with others all over the South West from Bath to Barnstable, Torquay to Truro. realshare also provides information about treatments and support, events in the area, and even includes a Game Zone if you just want to chill out.
Unlike other social networks realshare is closed to members only. You might find it easier to talk about things with other people in a similar situation to you. The forums are moderated by local outreach nurses who treat young people with cancer.
If you are known to one of the cancer treatment teams in the region you can register with realshare here
. It may take a couple of days to get you signed up and then you can get involved. Some of the information pages are available to non-members and your friends and family might find them useful.
The more the community of members engage the better realshare will be. Please get involved and make realshare a success.
