Give to Chix 4 a Cause on #GivingTuesday November 27, 2018

#GivingTuesday is November 27, 2018!

Every Tuesday after Thanksgiving, in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, nonprofit organizations remind us to celebrate the holiday season by giving to those in need. This year, add cancer patients to your list of recipients by donating to our Gifts of Love program.

Gifts of Love are unique to each cancer patient’s needs and help improve their emotional well-being. Typical Gifts include mortgage or rent assistance, gas or grocery cards, a family weekend away, theater or concert tickets, or taxi or bus passes. Gifts of Love can go a long way toward improving a patient’s quality of life at a time when help is needed not only due to mounting medical bills, but also as they struggle with the realities of a cancer diagnosis.

Stay Present While Coping with Cancer

When someone in your life has cancer, you may grieve for them even when they are alive. Perhaps you think about what the future may be without them in it. A song may come on the radio and cause you break down over your loved one not hearing it with you. You may be nearing a major life event, such as graduating from college, buying a home, or getting married, and wonder whether your special person will be there for the event. If doctors bring bad news, you may feel as though nothing else matters.

However, these paralyzing thoughts prevent you from living while your loved one is still with you.

Instead of focusing on what may come, enjoy each moment as it happens. Rather than worrying about what may be, spend time making memories. No matter your special person’s outcome, you can look back on their journey and know that you made a difference in their life.

If you or someone you know is battling cancer, contact Chix 4 a Cause. Learn more about our Gifts of Love program at chix4acause.org today.

Stay Present While Coping with Cancer

Use Positive Self-Talk to Cope with Stressful Situations

Cancer is a stressful disease. You have little control over doctor appointments, treatments, and side effects. You may experience anger, depression, isolation, and other negative emotions. Thankfully, you have control over your attitude about what is happening to you.

When you wake up each morning, choose to be optimistic. Tell yourself that it will be a good day. Remind yourself of how proud you are that you’re making it through. When things get tough, remember to keep going. Choose joy and optimism for feeling what you’re feeling because it means you are alive. You will be comforted by believing that things will be OK.

Positive self-talk has been shown to increase lifespan, reduce depression and distress, and increase resistance to illness. Positive self-talk also improves psychological and physical well-being, cardiovascular health, and overall coping skills during hardships. By practicing positive thinking, you increase your odds of surviving cancer.

If you or someone you know is battling cancer, get in touch with Chix 4 a Cause. Find out more about our Gifts of Love program at chix4acause.org today.

Tips to Feel Less Isolated During Your Battle with Cancer

The world can get small when you are diagnosed with cancer. You may feel like what was once a massive place now has insurmountable walls and gulfs blocking you from your normal life. Seemingly endless doctor visits, scans, blood work and other medical needs may increase feelings of fear, anger, grief and isolation. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to feel less isolated during your battle with cancer.

Leave Your Bed
Even if you are too tired from treatment to do more than two things each day, make getting out of bed one of them. Stay with a routine as much as possible. Shower, sit outside, or do something else that makes you feel better.

Keep a Journal
Write about your experiences, observations, and feelings. Confront the good and the bad that you experience. Accept the way that you feel. Try seeing and feeling things in a better way.

Talk About What You Want
Verbalize what it is that you want. You will be more inclined to act on it. Remind yourself that you don’t have to feel alone. You can reach out to family, friends, or a support group. Even if they do not understand what you are going through, you will feel less alone.

Volunteer
If you have enough energy, volunteer with a nonprofit organization that helps cancer patients. You will connect with others who understand what you are going through and be able to support each other. You also will add to your support system while helping those in need.
