Astrocytoma - Grade III and IV Disability Allowances

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

Faced with the reality of an unprecedented backlog of 2.8 million claims in 2009, and longer wait times for applicants, the Social Security Administration (SSA) rolled out its Compassionate Allowances program in October 2008 in an effort to provide benefits quickly to applicants whose medical conditions are so serious that their conditions obviously meet disability standards.

A modest 50 conditions—25 rare diseases and 25 cancers—were selected for the initiative’s rollout, and 38 new diseases were recently added.

Nutrition: Cause and Treatment for Chronic Diseases

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

This website shows how lifestyle is both the primary cause and the basic remedy for degenerative chronic diseases, including cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes. The following four aspects are highlighted:

1) According to nutritionists, the main common cause of chronic diseases appears to be
acidosis or body over-acidity. This condition produces a progressive deterioration of our metabolism, our physiology and our immune system, which are the essential functions that sustain health and life itself. This deterioration is a general condition, reason why degenerative diseases never come alone.

2) Our modern lifestyle appears to be the major cause of acidosis and ultimately of most degenerative diseases. This lifestyle is characterized by a lack of physical activities, a too stressful emotional and physical environment and an acidic diet.

3) A healthy lifestyle, with physical exercises, less stresses and a balanced alkaline diet, empowers our body to successfully prevent diseases and heal itself with or without prescription medications.

4) The website focuses particularly on nutrition and health. Nutritional plans with alkaline diet and supplements are suggested.

Altichealthprevention.com suggests to patients with cancer and to cancer survivors to adopt the healthy lifestyle described above. That will allow the body to better fight the disease and to increase the effectiveness of the medications prescribed by the physicians.

CANCER - FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, RESOURCES, SCHOLARSHIPS, INFO

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

Information about Financial Assistance, Resources and Scholarships for Cancer Patients, Cancer Survivors and their families.

My name is Sarah Dees. I created this site on Facebook to help people who have been touched by cancer. I am a recent survivor of colorectal cancer, (treatment year 2006-2007), a professional artist, a single mother, a positive person. I welcome friends and encourage people to share this site. We are all brothers and sisters in the fight to survive cancer.

You don't have to be a member of Facebook to access the site, but you need to be a Facebook member to join the group or post comments. As the site grows and evolves, I will be creating a larger, dedicated web site that is not only on Facebook, but this is where it begins.
