We've been getting a lot of emails from social workers and hospitals that have patients that are undocumented. One of the most difficult things is that most cancer organizations only help citizens. I was able to find a couple different resources for the social worker and she was eternally grateful. When I talked to another nonprofit helpline they told me that they are always shocked when the bigger nonprofits just push patients away by telling them that there's no help for them as opposed to trying to find a way.

Our organization might not have the funds to help undocumented cancer patients, but we will do all we can to find some resources that can. The helpline lady felt the same way.

My UCAAN life is never ending. :-) I am always available to talk to anyone dealing with cancer. If your friend or family member is too scared to reach out to me themselves, UCAAN always them if I can call them to initiate the conversation.

Remember, I am here to make things easier for those fighting cancer!

At UCAAN, United Cancer Advocacy Action Network, we focus on connecting patients to all the resources and vital information they need Nationwide.

There were many pieces of information that I was never given when I had cancer back in 2006 and 2007.

How to prevent my teeth from falling out, how bad sugar was for me, referring to cancer as "the cancer" not "my cancer". These are things I learned after the fact. After I relapsed, after I reached remission.

These are some of the vital pieces of information that I provide to patients that get connected with me through UCAAN.

I'm working on a unique case. An employee of a school in Riverside is taking it upon herself to create a support group for parents in her community and school that have cancer and are concerned about how it will effect their child/children.

Since UCAAN is an Advocacy organization, she reached out to us for advice and connections. It's not the standard case we have... so everything is researched by hand. :)

So I am looking into resources to connect her with organization that may be able to help her set up this group for these parents battling cancer.

UCAAN is my life passion project, something I created after my own personal battle with rare terminal cancer twice. I've built it with amazing support & volunteers to the tune of impacting the lives of 10,000 cancer patients Nationwide in 10 years!

In June we embark on our 4th Cross Country trip with a different focus: Health, Wellness, Fitness & No Sugar. We will also be surveying Cancer Patients & their families in 45+ cities to assess what level of transportation assistance they need.

UCAAN help with as little as a $5 Donation.

We should be thankful to live in America, Where Cancer resources are available and patients can get help from many of them.

By some random chance, a mother, with a daughter with a rare form of cancer in South Africa contacted us last week. I have been working hard trying to find them resources because once again the system has failed them, like many others, and their cancer hospital has given them no resource information available to them!

I refused to turn them away, like other organizations based in the US would. So I started searching for organizations that could help them.

My point? There's not nearly enough organizations in South Africa or even in Europe to help them, let alone anyone in Europe / South Africa with cancer.

This is why I am thankful for what we DO HAVE - In America to help those with cancer. Hoping I get some more resources and support organizations to help this family

Shurly Fabulous Foods

We recently sent out an email to the Health department asking what they needed if we worked with an out of county co-packer and wanted to sell at the farmer's market in our community. They sent us a ton of information telling us that even if we had our products pre-packaged and put in sample cups we would still need a hand washing sink.

I have no idea how i would get one to events or pay for it $2500. lol Debating if we should just get into stores, as opposed to starting with farmer's markets. Many have told me the Ventrua County Health department is tough to work with.

We are beyond looking forward to our 10 year celebration. It's hard to believe that UCAAN has been around and helping cancer patients nationwide for almost 10 years!!

What's even more exciting is the number of lives we've impacted in that time. Please help us celebrate Saturday September 28th, Under the Big Top in Agoura Hills @ 6pm.

Save the date!

After a relaxing vacation, I'm looking forward 2 returning fresh on Monday 2 help those with cancer & prepare for our 10 year celebration!

I wanted to Share how we've helped cancer rockstars this month through UCAAN. :)

It's hard to believe that UCAAN is Celebrating 10 years this September. To Date we have helped close to 10,000 cancer patients/warriors nationwide. It's surreal to think this is even possible. But, with Hard Work Anything Can be Possible Right?

This last month we worked with 60 different patients, that live in cities across the country, each with individual needs and concerns. Some situations are harder, but we help each patient the best we can!

No cancer survivor/patient/warrior should EVER feel neglected or unsupported. With UCAAN, They Never will be.

This month we provided a local cancer warrior with some handmade jewelry (an assortment) for their personal fundraising program to help them raise the funds they need.

We provided information to 28 patients about other alternative treatment options, complementary alternative medicine information and even clinical trial info.

We provided Customized resources to each of our Rockstars this month! I feel that all of us, fighting cancer are Rockstars, for the journey and the fight we go through.

Gifted Nurses, Doctors & Patients at City of Hope special Butterfly handmade soaps, 48 soaps total in 4 different scents with different benefits. One was "Fly Free from Nausea & Headaches", "Fly Free From Stress & Anxiety", "Fly Towards Energy" & "Fly Towards Focus, Clarity, Determination".

Provided information about Healthy Eating & Avoiding Sugar to 45 Patients.

Provided information to 55 patients about Preventative Dental Care.

I would Love to post photos of current patients, but many of them want to be left anonymous. But I will share photos of Rockstars we have helped in the past! A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words!

Don't Forget. UCAAN Is a VITAL Resource, One that is Available to Anyone with Any Form of Cancer, Nationwide. If you know about UCAAN and Know Someone with Cancer, Please refer them to US!

All cancers matter, therefore we should celebrate and raise awareness anytime we can. The following ribbons are recognized for the month of October. Breast cancer, Metastatic breast cancer (Teal/pink/lime), Male breast cancer (blue/pink) and Liver cancer (Dark green).

Hello, Since I came out of a colon cancer surgery a few weeks ago, things have been extremely difficult for me, even more than it was before I went for the surgery with the exception of the fact that I'm alive today, as I was facing immediate death before the surgery. Right now I'm much deeper into debt, and lacking the finance to continue the chemotherapy treatments, and providing myself with the type of nutrition that is needed for this serious ailment, these have been the most immediate problems facing me. I urgently need some financial help, I'm pleading if you could please help feature my fundraiser on your page, being that I'm very new to social media, my effort so far has not been successful, I'll be very much glad if you or anyone could kindly do me this favor. Thanks and God bless, Raymond.
