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.
Be mindful that my vision is not what it used to be
Just listen to my gripes and encourage me,
Just listen and accept that we will get thru this one day at a time.
crabs legs please
Pray for all who need it.
give me tips on what to eat what they been through their time and what they did as for treatments
treat me the same, don't be on eggshells around me
Just keep in touch with me....don,t pigeon hole me...
just sit with me. its ok not to talk a lot. follow my lead.
Continue to fight the battle and win the war!
Just be there,love me tell I know what it is .
Love and support me and still know im still me, always the joker
Be open and honest. I don't need pity or sympathy. Ask questions, don't assume...and STAY OFF THE INTERNET...beets and milk thistle aren't a cure!
share stories
Gregg would have wanted you to live your life to the fullest.
Help with post treatment support!

Help me if I need it, just be there for me.
Encouragement - this is the third type of cancer I've now had!
Just treat me the same. I am still Berns. That will never change. Just support me and be awesome like you all are!
Send me a good joke! Make me laugh; I'll return the favor!
Get a second opinion. Think outside the Box. Take a bold step forward. And mostly, do your own research.
call me, visit, and be the biggest supporters I can have
spread teh word for early detection testing
Continue to pray and if you can, help us with the medical costs and other expenses.
