This site is being developed to include information about Cancer, to provide an educational base to the knowledge about the disease and it's management. The information added to the site will be designed to enable the new cancer impacted person (patient, family member, care giver) to systematically review the most important information to start, and then continue their education in the area, without overwhelming the participant with all the information needed to understand the subject in great detail. As more information is needed, and the member becomes ready to consume it, it will be ready in small, sequential, digestable chunks. This site will not provide medical guidance or suggestions. We will organize the information already published, fully sourced and identified, yet pulled apart and re-organized into an effective library. The role of the Active Members will be to read the material and decompose it into significant chunks, or to take those chunks and spread them into this Knowledge Library. Anyone that is willing to spend the time to do the research and summarize it at an event\transaction level, or willing to assist in the update and maintenance of the site can add support. Meetings will held routinely to discuss new findings, update potential research sources, meet new members and discuss the latest information on Treatment and Trials. If you're interested in actively participating, please drop me a note at CIMpleBS@Gmail.com with a brief introduction as to your background, interest, location and availability for meetings. If you are interested in attending the meetings and using the site to keep up with the various topics, watch this site for information as this project gets off the ground.
This Home page will include organizational information related to the group, it's mission, objective, and the Knowlege Framework, to assist Navigational understanding. Each of the Sections will be organized based on a consistent Knowledge Framework, as outlined below. The first three sections will be "Cancer - The Disease", "Immunology" and "Kidney Cancer" . As members engage and want to focus on different Cancer Types or areas, then new sections will be added for their communications (i.e. Radiation, ChemoTherapy, 'Organ' Cancer...). The goal of the Discussion Group is to continuously elaborate and update this shared set of knowledge.
