IHadCancer.com Nominated For Best Community Website In The 17th Annual Webby Awards

NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Squeaky Wheel Media is proud to announce that IHadCancer.com has been nominated for Best Community Website for its second consecutive year in the 17 th Annual Webby Awards.

"I started I Had Cancer because I saw a lack of resources for people who needed peer-to-peer support when dealing with cancer," says founder, Mailet Lopez. "I wanted to build a community that allowed people to connect and share similar experiences. It has been humbling to watch the community grow and to witness the daily connections of support—we're honored to share this nomination with each and every one of our members."

I Had Cancer aims to help anyone affected by cancer connect with someone who understands, whether they have been diagnosed themselves or are supporting a loved one. "What's great about I Had Cancer is that it gives people an opportunity to immediately connect with the kind of people who can not only give them guidance but some sort of hope," says Michael Solomon, a Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor and author of Now It's Funny. "It lets them know they're not alone and they can overcome what they have to because someone else did it."

"Our team is incredibly proud to have designed and developed an innovative resource that is helping so many people," says Anthony Del Monte, President of Squeaky Wheel Media. "As an independent shop, we've always challenged ourselves to produce top-quality work, and to be recognized for a second year in a row alongside companies like Tumblr, SoundCloud, Behance and GOOD is an outstanding achievement for us."  Squeaky took home the Webby last year in the Community category for I Had Cancer.

As a nominee, I Had Cancer is also eligible to win a Webby People's Voice Award, which is voted for online by the public. From now until April 25 th, you can cast your votes for  Best Community Website at:  http://pv.webbyawards.com/nominees/web/general-website/community.

Winners will be announced on April 30, 2013 and honored at a ceremony on May 21, 2013 at Cipriani on Wall Street in New York City, where they will have an opportunity to deliver one of The Webby Awards' famous 5-Word Speeches.
