Your Opinion Requested (cancer gastrointestinal)
I am working on a setup for new sections of the Rare Cancer Website. It
will actually be five separate websites. One for general rare cancer info,
one for support, one for news, one for adult rare cancers, and one for
pediatric cancers. I have been working my butt off doing this, but I think
it will help to divide it up, in the long run.
In any event, I am trying to decide how to categorize rare cancers. I have
set up the test website exactly the way it is classified in the Textbook of
Uncommon Cancers, second edition, Table of Contents. Here is my test URL:
The first menu selection "Listed By Type" is directly from the Textbook. If
you cannot read the menu, here is the different types listed there: breast,
cutaneous, endocrine, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecological, head &
neck, hematological, neurological, and thoracic.
I am not fond of this way of classifying. I prefer the classification
method that I have listed on my website here
http://www.rare-cancer.org/class.htmI . I need to know, which method would
be the most useful for the patients looking for information for their rare
cancer. Could you, as patients, give me some input/suggestions?
I will (as you can see by the second menu section on
http://adult.rare-cancer.org/) be authoring pages that will have page links
listed alphabetically. And of course, there will be a complete indexing of
the website so that patients can use the search engine (at the top of each
page) to find info on their cancer also. So, no matter what, the
information will be easily found.
Take Care, Sharon Lane
