When Sympathy Isn't Enough

by Dana Demas

Are you looking for some advice about a thorny personal issue related to cancer? A great website called The Checkout Line provides advice to the terminally ill, their friends and relatives. It’s a sort of “Dear Abby” run by the journalist Judy Bachrach, who fields some uncomfortable questions and gives straight answers.

Given all of the demands placed upon people affected by cancer, we’re still human with frustrations that can seem petty in the face of life-or-death. We can all use outlets – even if it’s just to read about the quandaries of others.

Just like our message boards here at CancerCompass, the advice site is totally anonymous. So, you can ask any question you have (yes…even that one). Check it out.
