So you want to help the fight against Cancer?

You know what actually helps in the fight against cancer? Whether it’s raising awareness, raising money or raising the quality of care for sufferers and their loved ones? Here’s a few suggestions:

Taking part in The Race For Life

Holding a  Macmillan Coffee Morning or a Blooming Great Tea Party

Donating unwanted items to be sold in Cancer charity shops

Volunteering For Cancer charities or a hospice

Raising money through sponsorship, or sponsoring others, or donating by direct debit to a Cancer charity

Registering for Gift Aid

Buying a Daffodil

Buying Merchandise from campaigns

Sharing your stories about detecting, diagnosing and fighting Cancer

Sharing leaflets and posters about symptoms and diagnosis

 

Leaving money in your will to Cancer Research

 

You know what else helps in the fight against Cancer?

Studying or Working at a specialised cancer research medical school

Becoming as a specialist cancer care nurse

And supporting any intelligent and committed person in their efforts to pursue these paths.

 

You want to know what doesn’t help in the fight against Cancer? Posting silly statuses on facebook to embarrass your friends and then encouraging them to join in while keeping the aim of the statuses a secret. This does not aid the fight against cancer. At All.

You want to help in the fight against Cancer? Pick something off the list and do it. I volunteered in a shop for three years. I donate clothes 2-3 times a year to the shop. I share posters and leaflets. I sponsor people to run the Race For Life. I go to coffee mornings at work. But I refuse to play silly status games, which claim to be for a noble purpose and are actually just ego boosters for people with no positive outcome.
