Success Treks- MSKCC “Bridges”

Communties can now be created electronically to share both burdens and successes.   Blogs, newsletters, websites.

“Bridges” is the quarterly newsletter of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Cancer Center in New York for cancer survivors and their families.  It’s a forum to tell personal stories, find an instant support group, learn about new treatments and hear from experts- a must read for anyone who has survived cancer or knows someone who has.  www.mskcc.org/bridges.  Eileen Gould created this wonderful publication in the summer of 2008.  She is a model of personal triumph over a lifetime of  challenges.

Duane Bailey-Castro was her inspiration for the name “Bridges“.  Duane did a series of photographs of bridges in NYC while recovering from his second stem cell transplant at MSKCC.  He wanted to be outside with a project, but not near other humans for fear of germs.  Eileen calls him one of the most amazing people she’s ever met.   www.journalofaprizefighter.blogspot.com

  1. Great use of this type of blog, CandyPants and nice going Eileen. I’ve had experience using a similar site to follow a friends process through her treatments.
