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.
tell me how do you survive
Treat me as you always have, I'm still me with or without cancer.
Donate to the cause
Reading others experiences, helps take the mystery out, knwoing we're not alone with this
Listen, share, love, fight and get better themselves.
Keep talking to me.
The importance of screening...no matter what age
Just allow me to tell the story of this journey
donate blood and bone marrow
help me understand what to expect
take me out of the fear
Call me or send me a note to let me know they are thinking about me, and to treat me at they always have. No difference.
