The February 2019 Edition of “The Chirp”, the official Sparrow’s Nest newsletter, features an inspirational note from founder Krista Jones.

Krista Jones, Founder of Sparrow's Nest CharityThings to think about when in the presence of someone with cancer.

When we hear the words that a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, we often panic. We don’t know what to say. We don’t know what to do. And we don’t know how to help them. I think many times because of this, we often don’t do anything at all because we are afraid. We are afraid that we might be saying the wrong thing. We are afraid we might be making them feel worse. How could we understand what they are going through? I have seen many miracles and today I offer you one piece of advice. One of the worst things you can do is nothing at all. One of the best things you can do, regardless of the situation, is breathe life into them. Breathe positivity into them. Say words that will lift them up. Concentrate on supporting them in any way to help raise their spirits.

Even in the throes of a diagnosis, there is always hope, there is always a chance of remission.
