Inadvertently deleted this with the iPad....

For those new to a cancer dx, as well of for those of us who have been dealing with this for some time, LIVESTRONG.com offers a variety of resources. Recently I ordered their guidebook, which is available for just the cost of shipping. I find it to be an excellent resource, and one I wish I'd had when I was first diagnosed.

The website for the guidebook is:


From there you can go to the home page and check out all the other resources, including access to counselors.

LIVESTRONG is open minded with regard to complementary therapies.
They have great tools for exercise and body mass calculators for BMI.

Remember LIVESTRONG walk long.

I highly recommend filling out their intake form. They have a very wide variety of services. They will connect you with organizations to assist in many different areas. And they are on top of things - I was contacted by many services within 24-48 hours of filling out the intake form. I now keep in touch with someone watching for clinical trials for me. I was given a list of possible financial resources for me. I was given some other information for programs that unfortunately don't exist in my area through the YMCA.

I got their resource book and bracelet at no cost.

I'm fortunate that I live in Dallas and my treatments were at a cancer center that Lance Armstrong had donated money so they have the latest IMRT equipment. I was given the notebook when I started treatment and I keep it current because it contains so much information that my family may need one day. Lots of good info on the website too.
