After months of intensive collaboration with our friends at The Wellness Community, I am please to announce the launch of The Virtual Wellness Community (http://www.thewellnesscommunity.org). The re-designed Website provides cancer patients and caregivers with powerful social networking tools to exchange information and gain support as they cope with cancer.
Key features include community-driven discussion forums, professionally-moderated online support groups, media sharing, chat, and educational resources. Our creative design team embraced TWC's tag line of "Support. Education. Hope." to create an intuitive, user-friendly navigation for the site. On the technology side, our team leveraged open source technologies (e.g., PHP, MySQL) and Adobe Flash to keep development costs low and performance and accessibility high.
The Virtual Wellness Community helps approximately 125,000 online visitors annually.
