We have more and more reasons to want to be informed about cancer. The National Cancer Institute estimated that in the United States, in 2016, more than a 1.5 million people were diagnosed with cancer.
According to Cancer Research UK, one in two people may develop cancer at some point in their life. Estimations are harrowing, more so as the evolution is not an optimistic one, previously, the number suggested by research was one in three.
However, we can do more than getting informed about cancer. Millions begin their cancer journey and must sustain surgery, chemotherapy, transplants, long-time treatments.
It is, finally, an individual journey but it shouldn't be a solitary one. Many people who have cancer say that little acts of kindness from strangers made a huge difference in their lives. Psychologists tell us that we are wired to connect, our need to be social is fundamental, and it seems probable that this need may be even more important when we suffer.
We Believe in the Kindness Campaign
When we learned about Environmental Litigation Group P.C.'s kindness campaign, we decided to help. The group provides legal representation for people who have suffered occupational exposure to asbestos and have, consequently, developed different forms of cancer. The goal of this campaign is raising awareness on the quality of life of people affected by cancer. Anyone can participate by offering or sponsoring gift baskets which contain fresh produce, vitamins, or useful items.
The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary believes in this campaign, and we made sure ten people had a reason to smile and their days were brightened by receiving gift baskets.
Together, we can make a difference in supporting those that find themselves on a cancer journey. Small things lift us up and turn our whole days around. We hope you'll consider helping.
