how to help someone with breast cancer thumb You don't have to feel hopeless because your support can make a huge difference.

October marks many occasions, but one of the most important ones is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in their lifetime?

BREAST CANCER stats

While we've heard of how you can check for symptoms, what to do if you have it, and the stories of breast cancer patients and survivors, the truth is: it can affect everyone. Those with breast cancer are not the only ones who are scared; their friends and familes are too. They're not the only ones who don't know what to do; their friends and families are just as lost. But together, there is more strength than each individual fighting it alone. So if you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and you don't know what to do, here are a couple of things you can try.


As a friend:

how to help a friend with breast cancer

1. If she lies awake worrying, tell her you don't mind her calling in the dead of the night.

2. Don't provide her with the latest information you got off the Internet - you mean well, but she is vulnerable and scared.

3. 'Staying positive' is the greatest deterrent to her telling you how scared she really is.

4. Let her know you care even if she finds it hard to ask for help. Sometimes all it takes is a home-cooked meal. 

5. If you're worried for her, think of how worried she is for herself. 


As a child:

what to do if your mother has breast cancer

6. If you feel angry or hurt, then talk to someone about it. 

7. Keep communication lines in your family open.

8. Accept the fear. Watching your rock-solid, indefatigable mother weaken is frightening, but it will not help to reject her weakness.

9. Help around the house more; do the cleaning and help out with the chores.

10. Be there for her. Just skip that movie outing every so often to be with her. 

the bca campaign estee lauder

This year, Estee Lauder (who is supporting the cause for the 18th year) has a new inspirational theme for the 2014 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign:

"Let's defeat breast cancer. We're Stronger Together."

It does help. Check out this inspirational video of four families' compelling journeys after their loved ones were told they had breast cancer. It truly shows how 'We're Stronger Together'.

If this video moved you even an inch, then so can YOUR story. Just share it at www.BCAcampaign.com and use #BCAstrength on your social media channels. Who knows? It might give strength to someone out there whom you don't even know. Get your friends in on it too; every bit helps!

Ways to Improve Work Posture main When sitting at your work desk becomes a pain (literally), it’s a sign that you haven’t been positioning yourself properly. Learn how to sit better and move more with these tips!

Eyes

The monitor should be directly in front of you with the top of the screen at or slightly below eye level. Make sure the monitor is as far away as possible and adjust the screen’s brightness to avoid eye strain.

 

Neck and spine

Sit upright and naturally. Choose a firm chair, which lifts you up but does not push you forward. When seating, your hips should be higher than your knees. Place your documents on an in-line copy holder if you’re going to refer to them while working on your computer. Turning your body and leaning forward can cause neck, back and shoulder pain.

Wrist

Lower the ‘feet’ of your keyboard and rest your wrist on a little cushion when typing on the keyboard or using the mouse. Position the mouse next to the keyboard so your arms are beside your body, not stretched out.

 

Arms and shoulders

Keep frequently-used objects like stationery, the telephone and calendar within easy reach to prevent awkward postures. Stand to retrieve items on overhead shelves or anything that can’t be comfortably reached while sitting.

Feet

Use a footrest if your chair is too high and your feet cannot rest flat on the floor. Make sure there is ample space for your thighs and knees under the desk.
