How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

How Do You Thank Your Family And Friends For Their Support?

First of all I want to thank the almighty God who I pray to everyday. My family especially my wife who has been with me every step of the way. My oldest daughter who is an R N and worked with cancer patients for 15 years. She stayed with me at Oschner Hospital in New Orleans when I got diagnosed. My doctors , NP and nurses at Cancer Clinic at Oschner Hospital in Lafayette, La. A big thank you to my friends and my prayer groups who is very important to me. Thank you God is good.

For all the people who get support from family, lucky you. I wasn't that lucky.

I am so sorry you don’t have support from a family member or friend.
Maybe an option: Ask your hospital’s social service Dept if they have any volunteers that might be willing to assist you with your medical needs.
Now that my Aunt passed away and I was her Health Care Proxy and Biggest Support:
I have placed my name on a volunteer list to help a patient who doesn’t have support from any family or their friends.
If you was in my area ( Massachusetts) I would volunteer my support to you.👍

I never got support from my family. I don't have one. I didn't come from a close knit family that loves, care, and support you.
