Tips for Helping Cancer Patients
When a loved one gets diagnosed with cancer we want to help, but often don't know how.
We were joined by Lifestyle expert, Krista Colvin -- who was diagnosed with breast cancer in March of this year. Krista showed us some great ideas on ways friends and family can REALLY help.
Here are Krista's tips:
• Tell them that you're thinking of them/praying for them/Here to support you...
• Thinking of you via cards, notes, facebook messages, etc. preferred over phone calls, Instant Messaging on FB etc.
• CaringBridge.com -- A CaringBridge website is personal, private and available 24/7. It helps ease the burden of keeping family and friends informed. The websites are easy to create and use. Authors add health updates and photos to share their story while visitors leave messages of love and support in the guestbook.
• The American Cancer Society www.cancer.org
