I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and then the surgeon found I had ovarian cancer as well. I did not go through any type of chemo or radiation. I chose to have surgery. Everyone was very caring. My Church set up a schedule where someone brought us dinner each night. It was so nice feeling all of the love from my parish.

I have found that most genuinely do care enough to want to help, but n
no one know how they could help. I know what you mean. Its really kinda, i guess uniquely different.
Oh well he tries anyways. And i appreciate it.

We all have what it takes within ourselves to accomplish absolutely anything and everything imaginable in this world. We just need to make up our minds to just do it! Not one single thing in this world is impossible. We can do it!

Krnmac, I had similar experiences. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September 2009 and completed treatment in Jan 2010. I chose not to wear a wig during my treatment - just my choice! One Sunday morning after church, a lady stopped me and told me that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and asked if she could call me. That was what I hoped for - that I could be of help to someone else. As you know, we all deal with things differently. Some people were uncomfortable talking about my illness, others just took their cue from me, still others were very matter-of-fact.

I've come across two recently that were interesting to me.
One, I was in a store and saw a bald woman in a hat, wearing a face mask. I was prepared to give her, not pity, but rather a sympathetic "I kinda sorta know what you're going through" smile. She wasn't having it - she didn't look at anyone. That must work best for her.
This morning I went to the car dealer to get my oil changed. The service manager was overwhelmed - "I had no idea, I'm sorry!' And I thought, well it's not like I took out an ad in the paper, how would you be expected to know? It was nice, and he was nice.
My experience has been that people really do care. Anybody else?
