Welcome to the Canadian Cancer Society's online community, CancerConnection/ ParlonsCancer.ca (the "Website" or "Online Community"). This is a cancer-related, non-commercial web site. Its primary objective is to facilitate an environment in which people can share their experiences and build relationships that will support them in their fight against cancer. The Online Community's aim is to provide a healthy, safe, and constructive environment for discussion, support and the exchange of information about managing cancer in your life.
This is a Canadian website intended for use by residents of Canada, who are 18 years of age and over. World-wide participation is welcome, however, keep in mind that the content of the Website and the Online Community is tailored for Canadian residents using the Canadian health care system.
Anyone can view content on the Website without registration. In order to contribute and interact on the Online Community, however, you will need to register. Registration is free. The Online Community is owned and provided by the Canadian Cancer Society (referred to herein as the "CCS" or the "Society").
Help us keep the Online Community a safe and comfortable place for everyone seeking and sharing information and support. The Society expects its community members to be respectful of others, even those whose views may differ from your own. If you disagree with someone, please express yourself respectfully. Remain courteous at all times.
Remember that there are over 200 kinds of cancer, and everyone experiences cancer in different ways. Treatment solutions and decisions that worked for you may not be suitable for others. Sharing your experience is helpful, but please try to avoid giving advice.
