31 acts of kindness for supporting someone with breast cancer

Cosette Member Posts: 637
In her group, Christians diagnosed with breast cancer, @Soldier Crab posted a Christmas calendar of random acts of kindness. This inspired us to ask you, the members of the online network, what special little things a family member, friend, or colleague did that helped make things a little easier for you, that made you feel supported, and that brightened up your day after your diagnosis.

You told us and we put it together as a resource to help family, friends, and colleagues supporting someone with breast cancer. Download it, email it, print it, share it, leave it lying around somewhere as a not-so-subtle hint  ;)

BIG THANKS to the following people for sharing their stories: @wendy h, @primek, @Michelle R, @Nadi, @adean, @socoda, @melclarity, @Afraser, @mum2jj, @ScorpionQueen, @Brenda5, @Deanne, @kayvie, @nikkid, @LibbyB, @Jane221, @rowdy, @Share, and @Ne.

    That is wonderful! @Cosette_BCNA - maybe it would be good to put it on the BCNA facebook page as well?
