Living with Colon Cancer / Re: Is fitness effective?
« Last post by emma817 on December 18, 2018, 04:45:32 pm »
My father had that issue alot when he was going through chemo. What motivated him was finding a partner. He often times had a friend or family member (myself) go on walks with him. This not only distracted him from his legs wanting to collapse from the tiredness, but also kept him pushing. When picking a partner they should be your cheerleader. Someone who knows not to push you to much, but keep you motivated when you feel like giving up. Good conversation helps too!

Hoping it was caught early enough! Any cancer can be scary, but if it is caught early surgery can remove it. Keep us updated

Have you guys been in contact with a plastic surgeon? I would recommend finding one that deals with skin cancer related patients and see what they say.
Living with Skin Cancer / so what comes next?

My wife recently found a strange mole on her arm, and got it tested. The biopsy came back and it is melanoma. She is 62 years old, in great condition. I have never been around cancer so I dont know what to recommend next or how any of this works. That being said:
How fast can it spread?
What treatments have others used?
I want to be able to support her, so would like some guidance. Thanks.
Off Topic Forum / Re: gift ideas

What I would suggest is something meaningful! I am very into charity so something that could be cool is make a donation to a cancer charity in her name?
If she you dont think she'll be into that another idea could be take her somewhere special if she is up to it. Cancer really makes you think about all the special times you have with your loved ones, and justs one on one time with you is extremely special!
Good luck and let me know what you decidde!

My mother is currently fighting cancer and I want to get her a good gift this year, one that is meaningful because we dont know how much longer she will be around.

Anyone have ideas?
