With the help of volunteers and our web tech guru, Robb, Help With Cancer.org is back up and running.
It has been a lot of work! But Pattie and I are confident the changes will help our fellow cancer patients and caregivers find helpful information more quickly.
There are still some technical issues/glitches to overcome. For example, when Robb moved the site to our new, secure server, articles after July, 2011 wouldn’t come along.
I also discovered that a month or so of our earliest posts are also missing. Too bad, because it is fun to take a look back and reminisce about how it all began.
Things were more simple then. Pattie had endured two life-threatening showdowns with cancer. And I had been diagnosed the year before with bone marrow cancer.
So I am in the process of going back and re-publishing articles I feel are most relevant. I will start with a few of our very first, short posts about how and why we started this site on September 3rd, 2008. That’s like the stone age as far as blogs go. I didn’t even know how to publish pictures!
We will get things cleaned-up and have some fun with this over the next few weeks. But in the meantime, I hope you will find the new format to be as user friendly as we do!
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
