Help People With Cancer... But just how do you do that when it is your own Mother who have cancer, or your Brother, or Best Friend or a Great Co-Worker?. Since at this time you are in such a devastated state to see your loved one in so much pain, to see him or her quickly becoming half the person they used to be. Or even seeing them lose everything they own just so they could keep up with the medical bills, because they can't work. So your state of mind is not what it should be, as half of your heart has been ripped out with so much grief and sadness.
But as hard as it is for you dear friend to see that person sick, it is even much harder for that great beloved person. Because he or she is the one with the physical pain, the physical weakness, the trouble with having to keep foods down. So you have to pull yourself by the bootstraps right now, because that person needs you so much. So today I will share with you the top 5 ways to best help your best friend, your lover, your parent or your family.
First top way to help people with cancer: Don't Try To Have All The Answers.
What that person needs right now the most is a best friend to listen. And no matter what your diagnosis is of what may have caused the cancer, whether it was their destructive lifestyle, whether it was hereditary, right now is not the time. Treatment, Care and Support are what are needed at this time. So just give them the support of holding their hands, give them the friendship of a loving friend, give them the partnership of people helping people by going to their cancer clinic appointments with them. And just remind them that together, we will beat this...
Second best way to deal with a loved one's cancer: Help From The Heart.
Please know that once a loved one has been stricken with cancer, it is going to cost you some things. Whether it is all your free or non-free time, whether it is your special cooking, whether it is your car as constant transportation, whether it is the small amount of money you barely have. It is going to cost you, and so be prepared to help and give from the heart. And know that there is a good chance that this person may never be able to return the favor, especially if the cancer malady takes a turn for the worst. So give what you can, and do what you can by always being gentle and kind. No complaining, since this is not about you.
Third way to help people with cancer: Change Their Focus.
You already know that when you are sick, your entire focus is on your sickness. Especially one as devastating and as eroding as cancer, so you as the volunteering caretaker and supporter must help that person focus on new activities. Whether it is a great movie that he or she would love, just watch it with them. Whether it is listening to uplifting music, do so with them. Whether it is praying to God, or whether it is taking them on a short road trip in the country side, just to get them out of the house where all the medical equipments are. Just do something to change their mind, change their focus, change their environment. And of course never forget to find little things to make them smile or laugh, since you already know that laughter is the best medicine.
Fourth top way to help: Educate Yourself And Others.
Find some ways to get involved with cancer. First by learning all that you can about that particular cancer that the person is suffering from. Second, by raising awareness to others and doing some community activism. Third by demanding answers from the Doctors, the Research Companies and the Politicians, as to: Where Is The Cure? Since they are all taking in so much of your money, so much of my money and definitely have taken all of your loved one's savings. So get involved in those activities, because helping someone with cancer has many facets.
Fifth way to help people with cancer: Help And Let Them Relax.
First find ways to help them relax their body and then their brain, because at this time every little thing takes all of their energy. So don't let them stress about a light bill, instead reassure them that you will take care of it with the help of other friends and family. And when you go and visit them at the hospital, don't stay for too long. Because they may feel obligated to stay up with you, or talk with you, or even playing cards with you. So NO, come often because they are all you have, but do not wear them out with talks, with activities. And if anything encourage them to sleep while you're there, because most people feel so safe and comforted just because someone they know and love is around them in a strange place.
