We are more

Social support

Supported

Share with the community that completely understands what you are going through, and empathizes with you. You may not feel comfortable sharing with your family or close friends, but you are among those who care, with us. Most importantly, gain support, offer your opinion, and feel empowered by both.

We are Supported!!

Fist up

Empowered

We learn from a crowd sourced repository of experiences in coping with the diseases that affect your life. A knowledge base like no other to use as we learn about nutrition, medical complexities, comorbidities and medical side-effects.

We are Empowered!!

Hopeful - flying dove

Hopeful

Depression, alienation, and stigma might be common factors among all of us, but that can change quickly. We feel much stronger when we help others and gain hope for ourselves and for others. Be a part of the community of people who fight together for a better tomorrow. 

We are Hopeful!!

Hands reaching in heart

Everyday begins with a hug:

Whether weak or strong, we can all use a hug sometimes. Spread the love and send/receive hugs from people who understand your pain and empathise with you. Open up to them about you cause they are really listening.
