Breast cancer survivor blog journal with personal story, information and resources, insights and inspiration featuring breast cancer prevention and breast cancer survivorship issues.
Written by cancer survivor and journalist Lori Hope, Help Me Live has been described as an "everything you always wanted to know about how to help someone with cancer but were afraid to ask" storybook. Based on interviews and surveys with more than 100 cancer patients, survivors, and care providers, Help Me Live details words and actions that can help or hurt someone who's received a cancer diagnosis. It not only tells tales (many of which are humorous), but provides many lists of things to say and not say, plus examples of sensitive and compassionate ways to show your love.
This resource is more for caregivers than patients, but it's a good book for patients to have laying around for their friends, co-workers, and loved ones.
I know this can't change the reality of our individual diagnoses and situations but it is an interesting and useful idea.
I hope you like it.
