One area that can be difficult knows how to help the survivor in your life. Here are a few pieces of advice on how to help and then a link to a more ‘professional’ advice. These are based on my own cancer experience and yours could (and probably will) be different
Survivor, you may think that all I am going to say here is just get better, well you are wrong. You are responsible for your own health and happiness. You have to tell health professionals how you are feeling and what you want. You have to tell your caregiver how much you can handle and what you want to do so they can relay it to the others. You have to accept help and aid when you need it. You have to take the time to get better and you have to accept that you may not be able to do everything you did before your diagnosis. You will need to accept your limitations- at least for awhile. You will need to love yourself and find the beauty and joy in your life. You have a big responsibility in this journey towards remission and survivorship.

My charity is the Ending Cancer in Our Generation Foundation. We are an online art community for anyone who has been affected by cancer. We annually award a scholarship to a cancer survivor and a grant to a cancer caregiver. There are three ways to really help my charity
1. Support our fundraising- participate in our online events, buy our merchandise, or donate in kind.
2. Spread the word- we need to make sure we are available to all survivors and caregivers out there
3. Join our community- we need anyone who has been affected by cancer to come together in our community and express yourself through your creative endeavors.

I am one lone artist trying hard to make a difference in the world. I work too hard, sleep too little, stress too much, and generally do not take care of myself but knowing someone will find this website helpful is what has kept me going in redoing this site properly. It is my hope that one day this website and book will one day reach everyone. If you would like to help JBB, share this site with your friends, like us on Facebook, buy the book and share it with those who may need it. You can also donate to keep the site going by click the donate button below.
Show that you care about the survivor is the first step to making a real difference in the life of the survivor
