A Useful Website: Integrative Cancer Care

Several weeks ago, Rachelldon on the Inspire website posted her website which cited something called Integrative Cancer Care.  I am really grateful as I got LOTS out of it.  Not the least of which, there's some really cool headed discussion on using vitamins and supplements while you're on chemo, and much to my happiness, the best article on peripheral neuropathy I've read.

It was such a relief to me to find out that the fact that I often tripped over stuff was a direct result of the neuropathy.  I know this sounds odd, but I couldn't figure out why I tripped over the rolling stool in the library aisle.  I saw it. I knew it was there, and it was like it jumped in front of my foot...I had no idea my foot was anywhere near the stool....and this is a result of the neuropathy, not that I had suddenly become the biggest klutz in the world.

So, check this out....and look ALL around it.  It is one way cool site.  Rachell's website is called luponcancer.com (numeral 1, not an "L").  It's also great because it discusses a number of different types of cancer, and  things just in general.  It has sections for blood cancers, childhood cancers, breast, ovarian, colorectal, lung and prostate cancers as well as melanoma.  There's fun stuff....free stuff for cancer patients....and just good hard information.  I hope you enjoy it!
