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.
Hold the space for me to share and offer support
keep up with the shot that is out for this cancer.
Distractions and hugs.
be there when I need to talk
Just be there for my family and myself. Lend an ear or just offer any support.
Be patient as I work towards accepting their help.
Object to discrimination against people with cancer. Support reforms that make health insurance affordable for everyone.
Don't avoid the cancer issue, but don't talk about it all the time.
Give me practical advice and send me good vibes
don't smother me with kindness treat me normally
Make me laugh and be happy
lift me up in prayer give me encouragement
Give Forward anything you can at
Share Addisons story and download the song to benefit St. Jude's.
Don't stop believing you are a survivor
Prayer for me & my family, Visit my mother, and help me with rides to doctor, etc.
Stay in touch.
Spread the word about breast cancer & to be positive.
Pray for a miracle.
Prayers and advice and comments on the type of surgery I have chosen (da vinci surgery)
let me do as much as I can on my own
Pray for me, get a colonscopy NOW if u r high risk or are 50!
I am a firm believer in the power of prayer
Pray and listen!
