All Patients (or their Caregivers) must complete this form prior to being accepted into the group. This is to protect the privacy of our members and ensure only real patients and/or their caregivers are in the group. Once in the group if you wish to add other loved ones or family members, you may do so, but each patient (or their caregiver) must complete this form.
We will not share your information with anyone without your express consent. However, since this is a support group on the Facebook platform, your information may be used by Facebook in accordance with their Terms of Service and Privacy Policies. Anything posted to the group by you, or posts that you are tagged in, will not be visible to anyone who is not a member of the group. Postings from the group that appear on your news feed are only seen by you. Your membership in the group is private.
Upon submission of this form and approval for you to join the group, a Moderator will post a welcome message to you (they will tag you in the message) and the information provided here will be added to the membership spreadsheet that is available to all members, except your email address and Facebook profile link.
We ask that you provide an introduction of yourself within one week. This facilitates your acceptance into the group and allows current members to welcome you and to connect with you. It will enhance your overall experience within the group. You will see very quickly it is a very active, supportive, and social group.
