“The day that Dave Debronkart learned he had Stage 4 kidney cancer, his doctor handed him a prescription slip. On it, he’d scribbled ACOR.org. Within 11 minutes of submitting his first post to the Association of Cancer Online Resources, deBronkart, a software marketer in Nashua, N.H., received recommendations for top specialists–with links included–from patients on the site’s kidney-cancer list.
