How You Can Fight Cancer

(Even If You're Not a Doctor)

A guest article by Craig Meadows

No matter how many medical advancements we see year after year, there is still a lot of work needed to cure the many types of cancer that continue to plague our world. Currently, according to the World Cancer Research Fund, over 18 million people around the world have some form of cancer and while doctors work around the clock to try and help everyone they can, you can also do your part, even if you have no medical background to speak of. Here are some great tips for how you can do your own part to fight cancer.

Volunteer Work

If you have some time available to dedicate to volunteering to a local cause, then this is the time to put your heart into action. There are many ways that you can volunteer, from spending your time at a local hospital to leading support groups for those who are currently fighting or recovering from cancer.


Another way that you can do your part to fight cancer is by volunteering at fundraisers and other events designed to raise money for cancer research. These events can include everything from bake sales to walkathons.

If you are good at making crafts or you have a great imagination, you can make many products that can help to make money for cancer research. An easy way to go is to create T-shirts with a catchy logo that you can sell to supporters far and wide.

Another way that you can help in this regard is by joining one of many crowdfunding efforts that can be found online. You can go above and beyond in this regard by making your own crowdfunding event where you try to raise money either for a specific person or for the cause in general. When it comes to curing cancer, any amount of money will make a big difference.

Clinical Trials

One of the ways that doctors try to fight cancer is by looking for new medications or methods of research that can help them to make a dent in this disease. You can do your part by taking part in clinical trials for medications, stem cell treatments, and other trials designed to attempt to cure anything from leukemia to lymphoma. Keep in mind that you will not qualify for every clinical trial out there, but by putting your name on a list, you will be contacted when a match is made.

Become a Nurse

Even if you do not have any medical background, it doesn’t mean that you can’t learn the skills necessary to become a nurse and help patients who struggle with cancer. If you are interested, start looking at accredited online nursing degrees within your community and inquire about the skills necessary to join along with the cost of tuition. Keep in mind that online degree programs offer more flexibility than in-person learning, and they’re typically more affordable as well.

Nurses make a great income, and in addition to the pay, the work you do will make a major difference so you can return home every night knowing that you are helping the world. As far as specific tasks, Verywell Health explains that nurses can assist with chemotherapy treatments, administer medication, run blood work, and monitor vital signs, among many other lifesaving responsibilities.

Provide Support

In addition to medication, those fighting cancer sometimes just need advice, a friendly smile, or a helping hand, and you can help. One way to do that is by joining a service and support hotline where people with cancer call in when they have questions about their ailments and where they can get further information. You can help by being a reassuring voice on the other side of the phone.

In the end, the fact that you are looking beyond yourself to help those who are dealing with life-threatening diseases says a lot about your character, and you should be proud of yourself for your efforts.

Addendum by Healing Cancer Naturally

I love the helpful articles Craig has written for this site (see Related content below). I do have to strongly disagree with his suggestion to help raise money for cancer research. If you want to learn the reasons why this truly is not helpful but if anything, counterproductive, please go to Cancer: Why We're Losing the War, Cancer Research — A Super Fraud? and generally the entire section Cancer Research, Toxicity Testing & Animal Experimentation: An Unholy Union?.
