Cancer Hacks: Tools & Services To Heal Your Mind, Body & Wallet
Advertising

Like many of you, my life has been touched or shall we say ripped wide open by cancer. Friends and family have survived and died from this misunderstood condition. I have cared for those close to me until their passing and shouldered the fear and feelings of bodily betrayal that most face after diagnosis and through treatment. I’m not here to dwell on the pain or the past, but to offer guidance, hacks and solutions to help and heal those who are affected, whether they are friends, family or have cancer themselves.

Cancer is NOT a death sentence!

Hope and, more importantly, belief in a body’s ability to heal even the most terrifying of conditions is critical to healing. Those who discover ways to believe will have endless hope and have the best journeys. Cancer is simply a body in distress. Remove the distress and often bodies heal themselves to the bafflement of Western medicine. Come with me and get the best cancer hacks around. Don’t just survive it, thrive from it! Add to this list with your best hacks in the comment section below this article and join the conversation.

Mind Hacks

Get your mind in the right place and feel good doing it. Part entertainment, part storytelling and part just good advice, the following resources will get those gears cranking.

1. Soul Touching Stories

Healthy at 100 is a great place to start for understanding how amazing the human body is. Chicken Soup for the Soul has nothing on this book. I listened to it for healing after those close to me passed. I had developed an irrational fear that my body would betray me and this book, through its storytelling narrative of amazing journeys, reset my thinking and put my mind at ease.

2. New Medicine for A New Way of Thinking

Knockout is the true story and amazing journey of Suzanne Sommers. I admit I had never really paid attention to her career until this riveting and eye opening book. For those who want to avoid the chemo route and want to course towards fascinating alternative treatment methods, Suzanne guides you towards the types of specialists to seek and helps you understand the methodology and thinking behind some of the world’s best minds in alternative cancer treatment. Her personal story is just the icing on top! (and it’s an amazing story)

3. Putting it in Perspective

The eight irresistible Principles of FUN! This video always makes people smile. Many people can’t stop working and must balance work, research, and healing all at once. This would make any person cranky and overwhelmed. This vid will help take those common feelings of regret, pain, fear & frustration right off the menu so anyone can work AND be happy.

4. Connectivity

Get connected and tap into the cancer treatment community. Tell your story or simply pour through others stories and pull out the good bits! This cancer forum will get you started and give you a place to reflect and vent. http://www.cancerforums.net/

Body Hacks

Now let’s focus on the body with these great ways to bring the physical into the equation by taking action. It’s surprising what a body can do when the mind feels a purpose.

1. Take Action

It’s hard to remember all of the details when you are in the midst of the experience. The free mobile app at Cancer.Net Mobile is an amazing way to track questions and notes for your doctor as well as gain access to a library to learn about over 120 types of cancer.

2. Boot Camp

http://beatcancerbootcamp.com/ is a physical way to take action and hone the body and mind into a single, powerful unit to power you towards health. This site offers boot camps, outreach and has been featured on PBS and The Biggest Loser.

3. Yoga for Cancer

http://life.gaiam.com/article/cancer-survivors-thrive-yoga Read all about the softer side of movement that helps survivors through treatment and during recovery. There are so many inspiring stories and personal insights to help illuminate the mind-body connection for health.

Wallet Hacks

1. Crowd-funding for Treatment

http://www.donationto.com/ has free and paid fundraising accounts that let you personalize your own donation page and upload as many photos as you want. There are many stories on the site of families raising over $6,000 towards loved ones’ care. I did a similar thing on craigslist and asked for some educational video games for my niece who was born without kidneys and slipping in school because of all her treatments and dialysis. People give when you bear your heart and just have the courage to ask.

2. Borrow Against Life Insurance

Life Credit Company is worth a look if you have a life insurance policy and are looking at bills piling up. This is a novel idea and great place to check out if you are having trouble paying bills but you have a policy behind you.

Beyond the Label of Cancer

It is my personal wish that every person who reads this sees beyond cancer as a label or an identity. If you are already there, then you are further than most. Dig in, trust your body, love your friends and family and thrive, don’t just survive.
