My name is Terry Carlson. I’m writing a memoir about my best friend’s amazing journey with cancer.
EARLY SEPTEMBER 2010
Bill turned on his digital tape recorder. He didn’t have a problem understanding his oncologist. As a matter of fact, in Texas they would call this doctor a “straight shooter”. Bill wanted to record his conversations so later, after today’s chemotherapy treatment, he wouldn’t have to rely on his beleaguered brain to remember what was said.

Tips & Suggestions
Let friends and family help you
Often friends and family can run errands, provide transportation, prepare meals and help you with household chores. Learn to accept their help. Accepting help gives those who care about you a sense of making a contribution at a difficult time. Use the needs calendar on Navigating Cancer to ask for the help you need and your supporters can sign up without the burden of sheduling phone calls and coordination.
