Tips and Advice Just for Cancer Patients
In these rough economic times, day-to-day
expenses can seem overwhelming -- particularly if
you're juggling medical bills. So consider asking for a little help from family
and friends. Register for a "Wish List" on Amazon.com for practical items like
nutritional supplements or even bulk packages of toilet paper.
How often have you been asked, "What can I do to help?" So many times,
it seems like there's no good answer to that question. Family and friends truly
want to do something useful, so offering them the option of buying something
from your wish list gives others the chance to feel like they're doing something
to help you fight the battle.
We don't think twice about creating gift registries for weddings or births.
But what is cancer if not a major life event?
Amazon.com now offers a "Universal Wish List" button that you can drag
into your Web browser, allowing you to add products from any Web site, even
those not affiliated with Amazon.com. This can be handy if you need medical
supplies, for example. Items added with the Universal Wish List button will still
appear on your Amazon wish list with a link to the original seller's Web site.
Once you've created a wish list, you can share it via e-mail. Family and
friends -- particularly those who live out of townv--vwill have a great way to send
a little bit of love -- and helpv--your way with a simple click of the mouse.
