Cancer and Nutrition

The National Cancer Institute estimates that at least 35% of all cancers have a nutritional connection. When lifestyle factors such as smoking and exercise are included the associated risk becomes much stronger and may be as high as 85%.

Which foods are less important for health?

Need your help everyone, please share logistics and sites if you are aware of any…

 Dear Everone, 

Just like many of you, cancer has touched my family in the past by taking my uncle and now it wants to steal my angelic mother from me. I am here to ask you to please help me to find the necessary logestics such as loding and funds to transfer my very kind and full-of-life mother, who everyone loves and who has done right by everyone in her life, so she continues to live among us and touch our hearts. She has no one to care for except me, and I have no one except her, in my life.

12-14 months....children ages 5, 8, 22, 23, 31

While my husband of 10 years is still battling, we have entered pallitave care and have been told 12-14 months if we choose chemo to "buy us a little time".  I have been unable to find in cancer resources any support groups of survivors of spouse who are young with young children.  My husband is 57 and I am 48.  I'm swimming in the loving care of my 31 year-old step son, the confusion of my 23 year-old son in the Air Force, my 22 year-old daughter who wants him to live long enough to dance with her at her wedding, our 8 year-old who actually understands what is going on and prays that daddy

pancreatic cancer

    Hi!  My name is Becky and my dad has pancreatic cancer.  He was originally diagnosed in the spring of 2008.  He had the whipple procedure, chemo and radiation.  He was blessed enough to beat the cancer until now. He went last week for his yearly cat scan and blood work and was told by his cancer doctor that there wad a small spot on what is left of his pancreas.  The blood work came out clean and so she thought the spot was benign, but told him to see the surgeon.  He is going next week to Cleveland to see his surgeon that did his last surgery.  I am so scared that it is back.

Melanoma, Grief and Feeling Lost

I don't even know where to start. This is my first post and with so much that I have been holding onto, it's hard to know where to start letting go. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic melanoma on may 27th. He died on August 19th. He had been experiencing back pain, it became unbearable and resulted in a trip to the ER. His T8 and T9 were cracked and "eaten away" as one of the doctors put it. Six months ago he was carrying my 4 year old son around like a sack of potatoes and doing yard work. it was discovered he had metastasis to his brain, lungs, spleen, liver and bones.

worst wedding day

I lost my fiancé Sunday September 1, the day before our wedding day. On the Wednesday I was advised to start my leave for 6 weeks to take care of him. Due to a recent hospital stay we had postponed our wedding from the beginning of August to September since he went into the hospital the day before we went to get our marriage license and we needed to wait for him to be more mobile to get it. My fiancé had been diagnosed with cancer years before we met but was in remission when we met and started dating. Shortly after, we were informed  the cancer had spread to his lungs.

How can I help my dad?

My mama passed away a little over a month ago. Things are settling down. The fridge is no longer full of food that people brought by. We’ve all gone back to school or work. I worry about my dad. Do you have any advice about what I can do to help him? He’s “okay.” He’s functioning. I just want to know how to brighten his days a little bit. I’d appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
