Now to get back on my topic.....yes, all of us who are affected by cancer are definitely one big community of love. You may be a patient, a caregiver, a family member or friend, but with over 200 different types of cancer, in reality, there are not very many people who have not been touched by it from a personal perspective. Each of us are looking for support from others, for advice, for inspiration and for whatever it takes to keep going. The journey is difficult most of all for cancer patients, but it can also be a struggle for their family and friends. Knowing that there are others who care and are there to support us, makes all the difference.
My husband and I are indeed very blessed to have such a wonderful circle of family and friends. We probably don't always say that to them, but they are always there whenever and whatever time we should need them. We cannot do all of this on our own, it takes a community of people to help us along our way.
We strongly believe that my husband is doing so well because of his great faith, his positive attitude, medical research and because of those whom we have met along our journey. Reading many of your emails, I know that even though we are probably living in different countries, and speaking different languages, we all have that common bond of trying to find what might work, what has worked and what will work. It is through out discussions about cancer that we all unite and become that community of love. Loving your fellowman is the best gift you can really give anyone, and by sharing our thoughts and experiences with cancer, we are really doing just that.
Websites, like mine, are bringing families that live thousands of miles away, right into our homes.
Everyday we are meeting new people and making new discoveries about cancer. All of us are here to help, whenever you need it. As I said in an earlier post, "all you have to do is ask"!
As I check my stats about this website everyday and my global map appears on screen, each country is lit to indicate where my viewers are located. Every day those lights appear much brighter and in more areas. To me, it means that in some way, I might have brought some sort of inspiration to another person affected by cancer. If I can help just one person a week, then my goal for creating this website has been fulfilled. So today, I hope that each of you will pass along your stories, inspirational happenings and ideas to others who are affected by cancer, through the many websites, live chats, blogs and other forums that are available through this media. No man is an island.....you cannot do it alone.
