What are the Chordoma Connect guidelines?
  • Do not attempt to give medical advice at any time, or pass judgment on decisions others have made or are contemplating. Respect the choices of other members.
  • You must be over the age of 18 years old or have the permission of a parent or guardian to use Chordoma Connections. Children under the age of 13 years old may not use Chordoma Connections.
  • Respect the privacy of all group members by not discussing personal information from within the group to non-members.
  • Refrain from posting personal reviews of medical professionals, positive or negative. The CF Doctor Directory is a valuable resource for finding chordoma-experienced doctors and those searching for a doctor can be directed there. If information is posted on a doctor who has chordoma experience but is not currently listed in the Directory, please tag a CF staff member so the doctor can be contacted about being included.
  • Be encouraging and appropriate. Respect people as individuals by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive. As a worldwide community, there are many different ethnicities, cultures, religions, and beliefs represented here, and all should be respected.
  • Do not post content that is inappropriate, and use best judgment when posting graphic medical pictures or medical descriptions.
  • It is not permitted to solicit or advertise in the community for personal fundraising purposes. This includes any personal fundraisers, whether personal requests or through sites like GoFundMe, JustGiving, etc. These posts will be removed.
  • It is permitted to promote Chordoma Champions pages and community fundraisers that benefit the Chordoma Foundation.
  • If you need to vent, please refrain from including identifying information about any individual.
  • Share, share, share. We will do our part to provide valuable content. However, you have great connections, information, and resources as well. The more content that is shared, the more valuable a resource this community becomes!
