Today is a great day and…………
Tomorrow WILL BE BETTER!
Hi. My name is Jean. I hope the information I have put together on my website about how to fight cancer with the foods you eat, exercise and so much more will be helpful to you. My daughter told me that reading my site was calming, reassuring and very informative but, most importantly, easy to understand.
She said it was like “sitting down and having a cup of tea with me”. This is what I was hoping for.
Just hearing the word “cancer” is terrifying. Taking that first step to figure out what to do next can be overwhelming. If you know someone who has been dealing with cancer, or was just diagnosed, please tell them about my website. I am NOT a doctor or nutritionist, but I am the wife of a man diagnosed with Prostate cancer in 2008, CLL in 2010 and Melanoma in 2012. I’ve spent hundreds of hours on line and gone to thousands of websites since 2010 learning all this information.
Let me begin by giving you a little background information on why I decided to write this cancer-blog website. My daughters, Deborah and Erin had been telling me for several months to blog about his (our) experiences living with cancer. BUT……..the first thing I had to do was to learn what a blog was and how to set one up (this was in 2010). After Debi taught me, I decided that setting up numerous posts on several blog sites was just too slow of a process. I decided, instead, to create my own site where all the information could be in one place. My hope is that all the material I have gathered over the past seven years will be helpful, not only to those that have been dealing with cancer or for those that know of someone dealing with cancer, but for those who have just been diagnosed with it as well. Every time I learn something new the information is put on my website.
I talked to friends and family members and they all agreed; the website was a good idea. Everyone told me almost the same thing. “If I only helped one person, what more could I ask for?” That one sentence really made me think. I don’t think of myself as a writer but who better to tell our story; to talk about the changes that have taken place in our life after not one, but three cancer diagnosis, than someone who is living through it at this moment. This site will tell you what Tom and I have done and continue to do, to deal with his cancer diagnosis.
This site will be updated and new information added, usually on a weekly basis. If you have information, or resources, that you think will be helpful, please email this information to me and I will add it to my website. My email address is on the bottom of this page. Or, you can leave a message on my “Resources” page. If you know of other cancer related websites (or Facebook sites) that you think would be interested in my website, please share this information.
THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS, IDEAS, VIEWPOINTS AND OPINIONS. Remember, no two people are alike. What works for us may not work for you. If you, or someone you know, is diagnosed with cancer, always follow your Oncologists instructions. This website is here to show you what I have learned and how it has helped my husband. Nothing on my site should be considered a cure or treatment for cancer.
UPDATE 3/2018 – Today, on Facebook, I am starting a group called “Living Thru Cancer“. I want to hear positive stories from caretakers of cancer survivors, loved ones and friends who have fought their way thru cancer and came out on the “other side” either cured or in remission. I would like you to share any tips you have learned, your challenges and successes.
Please leave a comment and tell me if my website was able to help you.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR YOU TO REMEMBER IS:
** ALWAYS KEEP A POSITIVE OUTLOOK **
Having any type of serious illness is very stressful for everyone involved and can cause depression. Keeping a positive attitude really helps. If there is a group that deals with the same things you are dealing with, join the group. It helps to have someone to talk to that knows what you’re going through.
