Ratings and ReviewsSee All
After several failed attempts to connect with someone, I communicated with someone regularly only to find out weeks later that we had practically grown up next door to each other even though she was now 3,000 miles away. That sense of connection was wonderful and boosted me up when I was at my lowest! If at first you don’t connect just keep trying. When you do it is so worth it!
Everyone whose had breast cancer needs this
This app is beautifully designed, easy to use, and a great space for people with breast cancer to connect. If you have or had breast cancer, you need this app to connect with others who are going through the same experiences you are!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback! We're glad you're enjoying the app and community.
I’m new to Healthline. I received a message from someone in the community, and when I went to reply, I was limited to 280 characters. I found this disappointing, because when trying to introduce myself to someone for the first time, I didn’t feel that 280 characters were sufficient. Perhaps as I navigate my way around the community, I will find better ways to communicate with other women living with cancer. Thank you for this opportunity to voice my opinion.
