Courage stories, news about our actions and interesting news about cancer.

Wenn die Mutter an Krebs erkrankt, schlägt sich das auf alles in der Familie nieder. Für Mütter von kleinen Kindern ist dann der „normale“ Tagesablauf mit Anziehen, Essen machen, Kinder zur Kita oder Schule bringen, Haushalt „managen“ usw. kaum zu bewältigen. Auch die Kinder leiden sehr und die kleineren Kinder können ihre Sorgen und Ängste...
2022-News-Sex und Sommer
Sex und Sommer – kein Tabuthema für uns! Sexualität ist völlig normal, unabhängig vom Alter. Aber Vorsicht ist geboten, denn sogenannte Humane Papillomviren (HPV) sind Erreger der häufigsten sexuell übertragbaren Viruserkrankungen und werden über Haut- und Schleimhautkontakt übertragen. Rund 80 Prozent aller sexuell aktiven Menschen infizieren sich mindestens einmal im Leben mit diesen Viren, sie...

Patientenverfügung, Testament, digitaler Nachlass – im Krankheitsfall sollten ungeklärte Fragen noch zu Lebzeiten geregelt werden. Was gehört in eine Patientenverfügung, um auf der Intensivstation selbstbestimmt zu bleiben? Wie sorge ich dafür, das Mitangehörige im Todesfall nicht in ein finanzielles Loch fallen?

Zwei wichtige Dokumente sollten in Deinem Haushalt nicht fehlen: Patientenverfügung und Vorsorgevollmacht. Schnell kann eine Situation eintreten, in der andere entscheiden müssen.

In der Studie wurden die Daten von fast acht Millionen Geburten ausgewertet, darunter waren auch werdende Mütter nach einer Chemotherapie. Diese...
2022-Medikamente und Krebs
In vielen Teilen Deutschlands ist es wieder richtig warm. Ein wichtiger Tipp von uns: Wir müssen besonders vorsichtig bei Medikamenten sein, denn diese sollten bei Temperaturen zwischen 15 und 25 Grad gelagert werden. Tabletten und Dragees können kurzfristig höhere Temperaturen vertragen, aber nie im Auto lassen! Weiche und flüssige Foren wie Zäpfchen, Salben, Säfte und...

Krebs ist keine Frage des Alters: Jedes Jahr erkranken in Deutschland etwa 15000 junge Erwachsene zwischen 18 und 39 Jahren an Krebs. Etwa 80 Prozent von ihnen werden geheilt, doch Körper und Seele tragen Narben davon, die die Betroffenen in ihrer Persönlichkeitsentwicklung und ihrer Lebensplanung stark beeinflussen.

At this year's YES!CON 2.0 we dared a little experiment and had a song professionally produced from the middle of our community. We would like to take this opportunity to give special thanks to Fred Casimir/ BMG Rights Management, who made this possible. "Stronger than You" was written by the lawyer Simone von Bentivegni for her wife who is suffering from cancer.

According to the WHO, one in three cases of cancer could be prevented by a healthy lifestyle. Does this mean that I am to blame for my disease if I have eaten the wrong foods, exercised too little, smoked, or put myself through too much stress? Or if I did not regularly go for early diagnosis? Many sufferers ask themselves questions like these and burden themselves...
Many people who have cancer lose weight in the course of treatment. This further weakens their bodies and makes them more susceptible to infections, among other things.

What food do I start with on the...
One of the fundamental values of palliative care is self-determination, including the best possible preservation of quality of life.

Outpatient palliative care offers careful accompaniment: What helps patients to deal appropriately with their illness?

Thus, in the course of the disease, breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer and...

Although cancer is a physical disease, it affects the whole person and has a major impact on psychological well-being.

In addition, there may be phases during the course of the disease in which...

The contribution is still available until May 4 in the Arte-Mediathek. http://bit.ly/2D0N9bo
The MIKA app, developed in collaboration with Charité Berlin, Leipzig University Hospital and #NCT Heidelberg, accompanies #cancer patients during therapy.
