Helping a Friend with Cancer

Nicole Johnson has put together a creative list of 15 Ways to Really Help a Friend With Cancer that's right on target. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, her focus in on breast cancer, but the ideas suggested can really be applied to any kind of cancer and many other chronic illnesses as well. I've been blessed by some of these tips, such as a friend picking up my dirty laundry and returning it clean and folded, or another friend swinging by with a bag of grocery basics and the wonderful gift of paper plates!

Great blog on helping a friend with cancer. Another great resource is Human Tribe Project. HTP allows friends and family to organize a support group for a friend in need. The best part is that group members can also raise money for this individual by purchasing tribe tags- steel charm necklaces- for $20, with $15 going directly to the beneficiary. Friends don't always want to accept hand outs or ask for help, but HTP can help. Our website is www.humantribeproject.com. Hope this helps!
