What Brings You Joy?

A nurse at a cancer care center in St. Joseph, MO, sings to cancer patients as a way of helping with their emotional healing. Through The Joy Bus, a chef in Phoenix, AZ, prepares and delivers healthy lunches to home bound cancer patients. Cancer care facilities throughout the country offer animal-assisted therapy as a method of coping with the challenges cancer patients face daily.

These are excellent examples of how making a little bit of effort can significantly improve a cancer patient’s outlook on life. Improving patients’ emotional health has been shown to positively impact their physical health as well.

You can make a difference in the lives of cancer patients in your community without investing much time or money. Volunteer with CHIX 4 a Cause or donate to our Gifts of Love program today.

What Are You Most Worried About?

Like many others, you may worry about completing relatively simple, everyday tasks. Going to work, paying your bills, and spending time with family and friends may be among the topics on your mind.

Many cancer patients worry about undergoing treatments, dealing with side effects of treatments, and anticipating the potential recurrence or spread of their disease. Cancer patients’ worry may cause nausea and vomiting, increase their feelings of pain, interfere with their ability to sleep, and lessen their overall quality of life. If left untreated, worry may even result in lower survival rates for cancer patients.

Thankfully, you can do something to help.

Donate to CHIX 4 a Cause today and help provide Gifts of Love to people in your community battling cancer.
