SAN FRANCISCO, FEBRUARY 17, 2015 — MyBCTeam, the social network dedicated to women diagnosed with breast cancer announced that more than 15,000 women have become members on the network. Based on its rapid growth and success in the United States, MyBCTeam also opened its doors to seven countries outside the United States this past December.
According to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, globally, breast cancer now represents one in four of all cancers in women.
“Every week we receive emails from women around the world asking us to open MyBCTeam in their country. There’s massive pent up demand in the breast cancer community for a network that makes it easy connect with others going through the same experience,” says Mary Ray, co-founder and COO of MyHealthTeams, Inc., the San Francisco-based company that created MyBCTeam.
“Technology is making it possible for women around the world to provide emotional support and practical advice,” says Ray. “Advice such as what family-planning questions to ask your doctor before beginning chemotherapy, or even something related to self-image like, ‘What’s the best way to wear a wig that looks most natural?’”
As with all of MyHealthTeams’ social networks, MyBCTeam is free and available as a mobile app for iPhones and Android devices. Women diagnosed with breast cancer can find it at http://www.MyBCTeam.com.
