Resources for Warriors
When diagnosed with cancer, getting treatment, or in remission, there are many questions you may have. These questions may range from “Why me?” to “How can I pay these bills?”. These resources can help you find the support you need.
Stupid Cancer is a site that encompasses everything from financial support, emotional support and a place to talk to other cancer warriors.
Livestrong is a site that can find and connect you to resources very quickly.
Cancer Support Community is a one stop shop for the newly diagnosed. They cover about everything from choosing the right healthcare team to questions you should ask. You have to remember that you have a say in treatments and medications. Don’t say yes to everything without doing research and getting a second opinion.
Cancer.com discusses the changes you may need to make before, during and after treatment. This is not a perfect guide. Every person has different needs nutritionally. And those needs may change because of certain medications. It is a good starting point.
MSKCC is the cancer education page for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. You can search for all sorts of information.
SPL is a great resource if you feel like taking your life at any point. They have a phone number to call and a chat function.
The Simple Dollar provides valuable information on how to offset treatment costs and reduce financial stress. In their "Guide to Paying for Cancer Treatments" they discuss payment options, important questions to ask, and recommendations from experienced medical professionals.
The Recovery Village can help you if you are struggling with substance abuse. Medications are often prescribed for pain relief during cancer treatment. Taking opioids in excess can be especially dangerous during this phase of your life. They have an excellent resource page dedicated to Warriors that shares information on preventing opioid addiction and ways to work through recovery.
