I heard a proverb by Confucius that I had to share. “Don’t be afraid of going slow………..Just be afraid of stopping“. It loosely translates to……..NEVER GIVE UP. No matter how long or hard the fight is…………………Never lose hope!! NEVER GIVE UP!!
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 have been dealing with cancer, know someone who is 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 Deb 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 11 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 give you options and 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.
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 outlook really helps. If there are groups that deal with the same things you are dealing with, join those groups. It helps to have someone to talk to that knows what you’re going through.
After reading this site, if you have any questions, please leave a message on this website, email me or go to my Facebook page:
I’m sorry to say that there haven’t been as many updates on my site as their should have been during the past couple of years. I was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration 2 1/2 years ago and have slowly been losing my site. I am on Mac D medication. I can still see but, everything is very blurry. Reading is very hard.
