You have cancer and your friends, co-workers and family want to help but how do you manage their support AND your own well-being? You don’t! Kim Hamer will show you how to set up a community of support around you so you can focus on healing and they can focus on you!
Kim Hamer is the author of 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend’s Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss, an essential, simple and extremely helpful how-to guide on how to connect when you don’t’ know what to do or say.
She wrote the book six years after her 44-year old husband died from cancer. She credits her “sanity” to the unique, wonderful and meaningful ways their communities helped her husband while he had cancer and her and their three kids after her husband died. Many of the tips in the book come from actions people in their community took. 100 Acts of Love provides insightful ideas and courage so others can express their love and support to their friend with cancer.
