How Do I Help Someone With Cancer?

I can remember a lot of people asking me "what can I do to help?". I never knew what to tell them. I was almost too overwhelmed to know what I needed. I have asked this question of other survivors in order to give people some ideas on what they can do to help.
Financial help is needed for cancer patient this was one of my worst worries got very close to losing our house lost our truck and barely made it thur the rest
Don't look at me all teary eyed!
Visit the blog I started for my wife (, review the science based resources (videos, etc.) I've posted and see if any can help you. If you have means and desire to help us there's a page on our blog for donations.
