When this Single Mom was Diagnosed with C****r, Her Childhood Friend Stepped Up and Did THIS!

That was an extremely moving effort right there! A true friend indeed!

They say you can only know who your true friends are in times of need. Although they may not be present during night outs and happy events, they will surely find a way to be there during our most troubled moments. Take this story for example. Samantha Meitla was recently diagnosed with an aggressive type of uterine cancer. Being a single mom who has to make ends meet for her five children, the road of her life has been rocky, particularly when she was diagnosed with her disease.

Gladly, a childhood friend came to the rescue. Elaine Schwartz first found out about Samantha’s condition on Facebook and she said she instantly felt her heart drop to her stomach upon learning the news. She feared for Samantha and her children and so she thought of ways to lessen the stress and make their lives bearable.

Committing to a relationship and actually picking out the bigger slice of the cake of love puts love in a totally different tune. Thanks to the love gurus, here is a quick recipe for one’s delight.

Finding love is easy. Keeping it is the tricky part. Out of 7.3 billion people, who would ever believe of the 50-50 rare chance of meeting THE one for you? Who knows, she may be sitting right next to you at this very moment? Or maybe, it's the guy with the glasses who always ride the same bus every morning? Perhaps the pretty lass who never fails to smile right back to you every time your eyes meet? No matter who, what, when, where, why and how, cupid is always up on his toes. All we need to do is to grab it. However, although many seem to think that finding love is as easy as one, two, three, many disregard the next big question—what happens next after finding THE ONE?

Many call it the compatibility test, some call it destiny. Nevertheless, you label the kind of relationship you have with your significant other, committing to a relationship and actually picking out the bigger slice of the cake of love puts love in a totally different tune. Thanks to the love gurus, here is a quick recipe that will surely be of everyone’s delight.

Love without trust is simply not a relationship at all. Remember the building that collapses after merely a month? Well, aside from the obvious usage of low-quality materials, the foundation may have been miscalculated. Although many easily tire out on the cliché, "honesty is the best policy," being truthful is actually a VIP card to success.
Trusting is having faith that your partner won’t hurt you; it's a privilege you give them as soon as you give a chunk of yourself. However, it is with deep caution that we should also weigh to whom our trust should go to. Remember, a spark can start fire and fire burns just about anything and everything....

Artistic tattoos help breast cancer survivors fight the negative psychological and emotional effects of surgery.

By

Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer that affects women worldwide. In 2012, there were approximately 1.7 million newly diagnosed cases of breast cancer. The World Health Organization estimated that 521,000 people succumbed to this fatal disease that same year.

Various treatment options are offered to women who have breast cancer. Chemotherapy and/ or surgeries may be advised depending on the size of the tumor and the extent of the disease. For patients who require surgery, the surgeon may perform a lumpectomy wherein only the tumor inside the breast is excised, or a total mastectomy to remove the entire breast. These procedures may help save lives, but many women experience negative psychological and emotional effects post-surgery including depression, shame, and anxiety.

In the past, reconstructive surgery of the breast was considered an act of vanity; however, the society's view regarding this matter has changed and many women opt to undergo breast reconstruction following mastectomies.

Recently, P.ink/ Personal ink thought of a way to help empower women who have had surgeries due to breast cancer. They help them connect with tattoo artists who can provide amazing and cool ideas to artistically cover the post-surgical scars on the patient's chest....

"I don't understand why people are calling me, but I really want to help."

- Alex Gitungano

It takes more than just a kind heart, but a pure, selfless, loving soul.

26-year old Alex Gitungano is such a person.
