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.
When we were going thru it, helped with my kids getting them to practice, ballet,etc. That relieved my wife of that and much appreciated.
Help with prayers and monetary support could halp
Donate to Dr. Growden at MGH.
Pray for me, send happy thoughts,
Help with money, so I can continue to live independently and help raise my five year old daughter
Let me fight, without comments, advice or negative and insensitive statements.
Give me inspirational thoughts/prayers/words
Pray and be there.
Keep me positive. Provide encouragement.
Just be there and listen when I need support
Information!
Remember that they love me & call once in awhile.
I need information how to deal with damaged saliva glands, what foods I can eat, I have dry mouth its damaging my teeth
Pray, pray, pray.
Keep cards and texts coming.
Continue what they are already doing. Knowing they are connected to Angela & I means so much.
Visit my gofund me page, Lots of Prayers, and educate yourself not only about Thyroid Cancer but all cancers and donate to theses charities when possible to help discover a cure.
Listen more, talk less
Be strong *for* me when i cant be
Support me with prayer, positivity when mine is sometimes non-existent, and FaceTime visits when I feel up to it.
Be kind to each other it could be your turn next
Spread the Cancer Gospel
Just acknowledge the cancer. Dont be afraid of it.
Dont tell me horror stories
