A Support Group Can Help

Cancer is a universal experience and can bind people together. An individual’s color, sex or religious background doesn’t matter when they are in the midst of a fight with cancer or after surviving the disease. They all share a common thread. Only people who have been affected by this disease and survive really know what its like to have beaten the odds.

In the world of cancer, many individuals have emotions that others might find difficult to understand. It is like driving a race car in which you can read all the books about, however, unless you get behind the wheel, you will never know what its like.

A 48 year-old male called Ronnie Lippin Cancer Information and Resource Line. This man was diagnosed with prostate cancer and needed emotional support to know it was going to be OK. The social worker at Ronnie Lippin Cancer Information and Resource empathized with this man and knew he needed the support from others going through the same experience to grasp the emotional strife he was enduring. Luckily, the social worker was able to find a local cancer support group for men in the LA area and provided him with this referral. This was a group of men who had the same cancer diagnosis and had previously undergone or were going through the same emotions, questions and fears. They had a place where they could share their experiences and identify with the struggle this man was going through, and at the same time instilling strength and hope.

To fight the battle of cancer, many need the support of others going through the same experience. Ronnie Lippin Cancer Information and Resource Line can be the gateway to getting you the referrals to these resources. All that we are asking is you reach out to us. If you or a loved one is in the depths of a battle with cancer let us bridge the gap of support and lend a helping hand to direct you to cancer resources in the LA area. Remember RLCIRL is a free service dedicated to connecting questions with answers.
