5 Tips to Stay Mentally Healthy When You Have Breast Cancer
Here’s What You Can Do to Stay Mentally Strong
A breast cancer diagnosis can bring your world to a screeching halt. Knowing you have a life-threatening disease can bring a mix of emotions and significantly affect your mental health. Things can become even more difficult if you don’t learn how to control your mental state, especially if you start suffering from mental health disorders.
Although it’s perfectly normal for breast cancer patients to feel mentally overwhelmed, such a feeling can be detrimental to recovery if you don’t keep it in check. For example, a common mental health problem experienced by cancer patients is stress, which weakens the immune system, according to studies. This affects the body’s ability to fight back and recover from diseases.
Your mental well-being is one of your greatest assets as you navigate life as a breast cancer patient. Breast Cancer Car Donations offers these five tips to help you maintain your mental health:
1. Connect with other people.
Living with breast cancer doesn’t mean you have to distance yourself from other people. Make an effort to connect with the people who support and care for you.
2. Take it one day at a time.
We don’t know what the future holds. Obsessively worrying about your cancer diagnosis can be very stressful. Take life one day at a time and focus on the present.
3. You don’t need to post everything on social media.
Social media can be a great outlet and source of support. However, it can also have negative effects on your mental health, especially with people constantly annoying you. You’re not required to post what you feel or how you’re doing on social media, so don’t think there’s something wrong if you don’t feel like it.
4. Get moving!
Exercise has a positive effect on your mental health. You don’t need to do intense workouts or half-marathon runs. Even a brisk walk around your neighborhood would be enough.
Avoid staying up late and get plenty of sleep. The more well-rested you are, the better you’ll be able to deal with the mental challenges of the day.
Lend a Helping Hand to Breast Cancer Sufferers
Hundreds of thousands of women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Worse, some of them can’t get proper treatment because they’re uninsured and lack the financial means to pay for the prohibitive costs of breast cancer treatments. This leaves them at the mercy of the disease, and all they can do is hope for a miracle to stay alive.
By donating your extra vehicle to us at Breast Cancer Car Donations, you can be the miracle that they’ve been hoping for.
We’ll sell your vehicle through one of the top auction houses within our network. We’ll then transfer the proceeds to our breast cancer-focused nonprofit partners to support their life-saving breast cancer assistance programs and services for indigent patients. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations use the extra funding to provide their beneficiaries with financial assistance and easy access to medical facilities where they can undergo full treatment. Our charity partners also offer free breast cancer screening, follow-up care after treatment, and other breast cancer prevention and education services.
To repay you for your generous deed, we’ll mail you the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your car within 30 days after its sale. With this receipt, you can claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.
You will also benefit from our free pickup and towing service. Since we operate in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, we can collect your vehicle wherever you had it parked or stored anywhere in the country.
Aside from the valuable material rewards that you’ll get for your donation, you’ll also be privileged to enjoy a most satisfying donating experience, knowing that your gift will help save lives.
We welcome almost all types of vehicles, even damaged ones that are hardly running.
