For me I was seeing a social worker when Dan was sick. He was looking up some things on the Internet to help get support for me. Came across the Canadian cancer society. Thry sent me a bunch of stuff and in there was the information about the on line support Community. I hesitated for a bit but decided to go for it. Soooo glad I did.
Help is out there. All you have to do is reach out.
When I was having radiation treatments, (starting May 2017) I picked up various leaflets and brochures in the waiting room. One of them was the CCS brochure on Radiation. Inside the back cover was a list of resources, including Cancerconnection. A couple of weeks after my treatments finished, I took a look and signed up.
In 2016: diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian cancer. Treatment: hysterectomy, chemo, radiation. Afterwards: No Evidence of Disease!
I was simply "On The Hunt For Help" (for me).....and found Canadian Cancer Society, and found this site.
HOORAY FOR HELP.....

Here’s the idea that got it all started:
