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.
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

Make the most of every moment, leave comments
Spread the word to others that we all need the love and support from family and friends. Tell them "We need to take care of each other" We can not do it alone. Check out for information on breast cancer awarenes

Ease my burdens not by saying, "let me know what I can do", because I can't get that far on my own. Ease them by just taking charge of what I am worrying about, I am very open about the things that need doing that I can't get to.

Go get your damn mammogram!
