This is the request we've had from the Daily Mail, if anyone can help?
Did you do something really thoughtful or practical for a loved one while they were suffering from cancer?
- cooked nutritious meals to nurture them
- sat and gave them hand and foot massages when they were feeling dreadful
- took days off work to read to them,watch DVDs with them, or do something lovely like sticking old photos in albums while reminiscing about old times
- sent sentimental gifts, such as photos, in the post to arrive at key points in their treatment when you knew doing so would give them a boost
Whatever it might be, I'd love to hear what you did to help someone and show you cared - it's for inclusion in a wider health piece designed to share tips with the loved ones of newly diagnosed cancer patients who are desperate to help in some way but don't know how. All I need is a few minutes on the phone or an email exchange with any willing helpers.
