Talking Bollox patient community website
The Talking Bollox patient community website has been designed to provide a comprehensive library of information on all stages of Testicular Cancer diagnosis, treatment, patient support and aftercare.
Research has shown that patient groups have clear benefits for people cancer. However, young men with testicular cancer prefer not to join patient groups, but rather turn to modern technology such as the internet for their support. The name for the site was researched and young patients questioned on its appropriateness.
Using pro-bono support for the building of the site, UCARE has raised funds for the web support and licenses required to support and launch the Talking Bollox site.
It costs around £5000 per annum to maintain such a web site.
