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.

Breast self-exams and early diagnosis saves lives!
Pray for everyone's pain and suffering.
Our getting cancer is as hard for family & friends as it is for us. They`re fear of us dying is very difficult, and so they tend to place us in this bubble, tapping on it to see if we are doing okay. I really do appreciate the love, care,concern, & support that I have recieved, sometimes I feel overwhelmed by it all.I have always been rather independant & strong minded, some would call it stubborn. So what my supporter can do for me is to rely on me to let them know when I need help. i have been blessed so far to feeling pretty good, and can still take care of my family much as I did before this life altering diagnosis. that in it`s self is a blessing of which I do not ever lose sight of
