Helpful Websites For Professionals, Patients and Families

It is very important to consider the source when reading a website.  Think about using more than one website to get your information and make sure the federal government sponsors one of the websites you use. 

Many websites offer chat rooms or buddy programs.  It is important to consider that when you participate in a program such as this, you must protect your private information and realize that the person offering you information is a layperson.  Realizing these limitations, many patients and families find great comfort in speaking to others in their situation.
