July 24th, 2013 at 0:31

Try to stick to your normal daily routine as much as possible. Try not to think too far ahead; your energy level, enthusiasm and physical health can change from day to day. You may need to be less rigid in your daily planning because of these unpredictable changes. Attempting to control your future just stresses you out, so don’t plan too far ahead. It is best to live your life to its fullest today,as much as you possible can.

Life continues despite the fact that you are ill. Keep up with your regular activities as long as your body will allow you. Falling ill is not a good reason to stop doing something that you enjoy. In fact, continuing your passions and pleasures will keep up your spirits and positive attitude.

Certain foods are known combatants of specific cancers, like the documented benefits of tomatoes against prostrate cancer. There is a wealth of research that suggests the cancer fighting properties of certain foods.

Keeping your weight down, eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise can not only make you feel great every day, but can also reduce your risk of cancer. If you want to prevent cancer, you need to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercise for at least half an hour a day and drink at least eight glasses of water per day.

Someone with cancer is going to want and need their time alone, so you have to know when to back off and to give a person some space. Having pride is important to everyone and sometimes, people do not want you to see them so vulnerable. Respect their request for privacy or you might be pushed away completely. It is a wise idea to arrange for transportation with friends or family to help you get to your medical appointments during treatments for cancer. Coping with cancer is hard, and dealing with side effects from treatment can affect your day-to-day functioning. It would be safer to have someone else drive for you.

If someone close to you receives a diagnosis of cancer, it is extremely helpful for you to express your love and concern to them in words. Expressing your love and support in many ways is wonderful, but sometimes it is those three words that mean the most. Your words of love will provide the support they need.
