Dr. Deanna Attai on Why Cancer Patients and Survivors Should Explore Social Media

Deanna J. Attai, breast surgeon and assistant clinical professor of surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, in Los Angeles, shares ways social media can help cancer patients and survivors.

"Cancer can be very isolating," she says. "Even if you may have friends and family and a good support system, it's nice to be able to talk to someone who's been going through the same thing. And you may not be able to do that in a local community support group."
