Wish you could share your breast-cancer experiences with others going through the same thing? There’s an app for that. And a new social-networking site, too.

MyHealthTeams has launched MyBreastCancerTeam (MyBCTeam, for short) for breast-cancer patients and survivors, a site that allows women to connect and share tips and referrals on everything from oncologists to wig shops to dietary advice, according to a news release.

“When a woman faces breast cancer, one of the most important resources she can have during this time is a network of real, personal connections with other women who are going through, or have been through, the same thing,” MyBreastCancerTeam cofounder Mary Ray says in the release. “MyBCTeam provides a safe and welcoming environment where women can share their personal stories and daily ups and downs during and after treatment. Oftentimes, only other women who have been in the same situation will truly understand the range of emotions—the anxiety, fatigue and self-image issues—that breast cancer can surface.”
