Greg Pierce-WhatNext

Patient Leader

I am a 3-time survivor of cancer, one stroke, and a basketful life-altering side effects. With a background in insurance sales from 1980 to 1988, a positive mental attitude has helped me through these issues. At WhatNext we strive to help those who are diagnosed with cancer by helping them connect with others on a similar path as them allowing them to ask questions, get answers, compare treatment plans, share the milestones achieved along the way, and get support when they need a shoulder to lean on. Our community members can research a proposed treatment plan, ask others about their personal experiences with it, and even get advice on their next move. We have resource pages where they can find help with financial issues. Our Pinboard is a place where members can post pictures of themselves either going through treatment, ringing the bell, or on certain milestones. We also have a Video page where we help those who want to share their inspiring cancer story. By recording a series of short videos describing their ups and downs, they will inspire thousands. As the Community Mgr./Social Media Mgr. for WhatNext, and being a 3 time survivor, my job is to inspire, encourage, educate, and support our members along their journey. There are lots of survivors just like me available to help those needing a hand to lift them up, or a shoulder to lean on while in the middle of the worst period of time in their life. Join us at WhatNext, you don't have to face cancer alone!
