Help for Those Diagnosed with Cancer

Certainly, when someone finds out that he has cancer, it is quite traumatic. He needs to know where to go and how to find the resources that will help him. One institution, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, has been working since 1947 to help both children and adults. They offer the best treatment available, while also working non-stop on research to find cures for the many cancers that are out there today.

Their blog helps to bring the larger-than-life issue of cancer to a more personal level. In a recent blog post, Maria Pearson wrote and article entitled “7 Tips for Life After Stem Cell Transplant” in which she discussed her own diagnosis and experience of going through stem cell transplantation. She writes excellent advice about coping with the process and moving forward.

In another recent post, James Donovan, a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs and an adjunct professor at the University of Virginia School of Law, writes about losing his close friend to cancer. As a result of his experience, Donovan went on to sit on the Board of Directors for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health Board of Directors. He is also a member of The Lark Center for Genitourinary Oncology and he established the Jim Donovan Fund for Prostate Cancer Research at Dana-Farber.

Certainly, these types of blog posts can help those who are struggling with cancer and can offer more information and insight to those in need.
