What Is On My Mind Today?


There is the sad chance many of us will experience some type of cancer, but  when you are aware, there is help for you and your family if cancer does find you this can be a huge blessing. With the stress of cancer treatment you have more to worry about than how you are going to pay your expenses as long as people with good hearts donate to these organizations there will be services available for you and your family if cancer finds you? Many people are living on fixed incomes and very low incomes today, but even a few dollars now and then donated to any of these organizations can help people who are living with cancer.

  2. When my father had cancer a few years ago I would’ve loved to have read an article like this one.

    When something like this hits at your loved ones, sometimes you get paralyzed, not knowing how to deal with all the aspects involved: emotional, financial, transportation, housing and so on.

    I believe that the directory you’ve elaborated here is of great value to anyone going through this terrible disease. Knowing all the available resources can have a huge impact on someone’s recovery.

    By the way, my father is healthier than ever! 🙂

    My dad and brother plus many others I know or have known have died because of cancer. It is so sad when I see a child with it.
    In this area, there is the Ronald McDonald house and it houses the families of children that are going through Cancer treatment in our area.

    1. Thank You

    I lost my mother recently to cancer and I am well aware of the finances necessary for treatment.
    This can be overwhelming, especially since one has to deal with the stress from the sickness itself.

    It really hurts to see anyone suffer from this dreaded disease and your site is a great comfort by providing so many helpful resources and coping mechanisms for dealing with this dreaded sickness.


    1. Thank You

      I appreciate your visiting and commenting on my article, I am very sorry to hear about your loss of your mother to cancer. I hope she did not suffer a long illness, she is in a good place now.


      1. Thanks Jeff. She is!
