OUR DOMAIN

The No Surrender Breast Cancer Support forum was started in 2007. It has been an amazing ride since then. We have a wonderful accompanying website that helps women through their breast cancer.

The Support Forum is and always has been a safe place that has been fiercely protected, so that frightened, stressed out breast cancer patients and their families can come to discussed their deepest fears and most intimate treatment details.

Every member has to be approved to prevent spam and hackers.

There are no ads. There is no spam. There is only love, support, sisterhood and heartbreaking posts from beloved sisters who are no longer with us.

Our website is run by us and is totally under our control. However, our Support Forum is hosted by a third party site run by less than scrupulous people. Every year, since 2007, the domain URL associated with the support forum has been on "auto-renew" to ensure our domain stays in ours.
The third party site profited from selling our Domain Name to a loathsome extortionist who gained control of the No Surrender Support Forum domain name. The domain name that women have been turning to for six years. The place where google searches lead newly diagnosed women to help and find friendship of their fellow sisters.

As a result, the third party site owners forced us to purchase a new domain name, profiting yet again.
In the meantime, the loathsome extortionist is now trying to pass himself off as US.

No Surrender is a registered trademark with the United States. It is trademark infringement for this person to pass himself off as us. Action has been taken.

However, we need your help. Please copy and paste the following on any site or twitter or message forum of your own so that women will find us and so, too, will Google search engines:
THE NO SURRENDER BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION IS, IN NO WAY, ASSOCIATED WITH THE HACKED LINK "www.nosurrenderbreastcancersurvivorforum.org" It was stolen from us and someone is using the link to spam unsuspecting women on their scam site. THE PROPER LINK FOR THE NO SURRENDER BREAST CANCER FORUM IS www.NOSURRENDERBREASTCANCERSUPPORTFORUM.COM. 
The authorities have been notified. The United States Trademark Office has been contacted. GoDaddy, where the domain was purchased has been put on notice. BlueHost that hosts the scam, phishing, hacked forum domain has also been put on notice.

Thank you for helping us.
