I’ve just seen this new web site - looks interesting. Mostly of interest for family members where the ill person is not yet getting treatment or doesn’t understand the need for treatment:

About the founder:

The Three of Us

My mom and dad were high school sweethearts. Married at the young age of 21, they lived in a tiny studio, eating off my dad’s amplifier that doubled as their dining room table, owning not much more than a salt shaker and broom. Although poor, they had each other, and that was enough.

A few years later, I came into the world, making our little family complete. With a $1.50 in my parent’s bank account, a new baby was the last thing they could afford; but their love for me was all that I needed to have a rich childhood. Being poor brought our family closer. I was blessed to have two loving parents who loved each other and loved me more than anything. I thought nothing could destroy the three of us. Until the day my mom fell sick.
