I’m an Amazon fan in that I love ordering something on my phone and having it appear on my doorstep 2 days later! And their prices are great. In dealing with cancer and it’s after effects, these types of services have been invaluable for me.
When it was time to have my hip replaced as a result of chemo treatments, Amazon saved me. I was almost unable to move, much less walk. To go to a store, I actually had to use one of the mobile shopping carts, and even that was nearly impossible. For a (soon to be former) tennis player, I was appalled at my condition.
Amazon to the rescue. I was able to order a walker, a raised toilet seat, an extended shoe horn…everything I needed and I didn’t have to traipse through a variety of stores. In addition to Amazon Prime, Amazon now has some new services that would make a perfect gift for anyone with cancer. Here’s an overview of some useful and relevant ways one can help:

How does one take control of one’s health, even in the face of cancer? What are the factors of health in the context of cancer?
Research by Dean Ornish, MD, David Servan-Schreiber, MD, Jeanne WallacePhD, CNC, and others point to 4 key factors over which each of us has total control: Nutrition, Exercise, Mind/Body Modalities (such as stress management) and Social Connection.
The lifestyle choices that create anti-cancer health are not the day to day reality that most of us live. Our lives are fast and stressful. We don’t always eat well and exercise may or may not be part of our equation. And even with family and friends, cancer can be very isolating. People simply don’t know what to say or do.
Ultimately each of us must find our own path, but we don’t have to re-create the wheel. Learn from all of us on this site as we share personal experiences, expertise and insights into creating an anti-cancer life.
