So, I am sat here, like I do… Thinking how can I get this going faster to help people! I know it will take a month to get the community hub off the ground…
So, I set up a Facebook group to get us started with helping each other!
—-> FIND THAT GROUP RIGHT HERE <—–
Your thinking well what is it for aren’t you! Well it is for anyone who want’s to find help in awful and scary time, not just for people with cancer. There are thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people who feel forgotten or low.
Lets make them have all feel loved by showing some love in the community, this is not just about me now. It is about everyone else who is in this with me. If YouTube has taught me anything it’s that a small army can make you feel very loved and wanted.
That small army of Lumpkins have made me feel very much accepting of my circumstances and problems, they have also made me realise that even the smallest comment can make someones day.
I am a programmer by trade and have a set plan for this website and the community.
What Will The Community Be?
The community will be a hub where you can interact, support and help each other no matter what the struggle is. No matter what you are going through and no matter what walk of life you are from.
A hub for all, and all for one 🙂 The lot of ya will hopefully interact nicely and help everyone.
How Will It Work?
Well that would be telling but it will intelligently match individuals with other individuals that have the same problems, issues or may be of help to you. Think a dating website but for support, a beautiful use of technology to help others.
So, how will that help you? Well if you are a carer, patient, or just interested then you will be able to get all the help and support that you need for people in the same boat as you.
Say you post about an osteosarcoma, you will be matched to others with osteosarcomas, not all but the few that have the same concerns or worries as you. The sysytem will intelligently match people based on set preferences, but you can always help everyone in the community 🙂
This is not going to be a forum, this is a social network to support eachother, this is going to be for the people by the people 🙂
Will It Cost Anything?
Nope, we will have a donation link on the site as we do on this website now as I do all this as I want to help people and if they would like to support and help with this please feel free to donate to help with the upkeep of the website, vlogs and community.
Why Do This?
Well… I have had very little support or idea about cancer, I actually knew nothing about it when I was diagnosed and realised very quickly that so many other people didn’t understand either, I feel that awareness is key for everyone!
Here’s the link again to the foundation facebook group 🙂

Daniel, I’ve been following your story, and all I have to say right now is… FIGHT!!! I am a member of the Sarcomatoid Renal Cell Carcinoma Facebook group where I saw your posts. And to just give you a small background, I became a member of the group last year when my son-in-law, Bobby, was diagnosed. The best things I can tell you, dear, is to research a good diet regime, PLEASE!! And, PLEASE look into immune therapy options! I am so glad you are not waiting around, but actually changing “teams” because this is NOT something to wait around on! Go get ’em and BEST of absolutely everything!! I will be following (lurking – haha) And, PLEASE, dear, I hope and pray that you have a deep relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ – he’s someone you can talk to when you can’t talk to anybody else!! And, HE can give you peace, dear! I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU! God Bless You and keep you!
I told you I would send you a link to a u tube page but unfortunately I findmyself computer and phone illiterate! The article reads ,Telomere leghthing cures Cancer .Thereally are newer posts available on this. I’m always looking. I had stage 3 breast cancer. Had surgery ,6months chemo, 2 months radiation. My husband has congenital leukemia. It’s come back again, 2nd time this year. They were giving him a test drug and it has damaged his liver. They want to change his chemo now.. We have a 5 year old grandson who we are raising. He needs us to be around awhile longer if possible. Please don’t think I’m crazy. I’m reaching for the stars you might say. I watch your videos. I just want to help. Your always in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
I saw your video on YouTube and was very touched by your channel and fight against cancer. I am sure you have had overwhelming support from many people in the form of donations and/or advice. I have never done this before but I would like to add to a possible treatment that I have not seen mentioned yet (not saying I have read all comments). But here in the United States where cannabis is legal in some states there is a product known as Rick Simpson’s oil. There was a mini-documentary about Mr. Simpson and his fight against cancer and how he found cannabis oil to cure his cancer called running from the cure. Since then there has been independent research that supports his claim that the cannabinoids can greatly reduce the size of the tumor or even “kill” (this point can be a much heated debate among the medical professionals) the tumors. He shows how to produce the oil with simple methods from the plant material from cannabis and even how to take it and for how long. This has produced amazing results for many people fight cancer. I don’t know where you live exactly and you may need to relocate to where it is legal to use this legally without breaking the law. But I wanted you to have this information available to you in your search for a cure. God bless you sir and your brave mother. I pray with others for you!
