Lotsahelping Hands helps breast cancer survivors in need

October 6, 2005

Lotsa Helping Hands is a free online service that provides a simple, immediate way for friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors to assist breast cancer survivors in need of meal delivery, rides, and other assistance. The online service has an easy-to-use, private group calendar, specifically designed for organizing helpers, where everyone can pitch in to accomplish the tasks necessary for life to run smoothly during a crisis.

It's easy to get started. First choose at least one coordinator. The coordinator(s) will sign up for a free membership, create the breast cancer survivors's group calendar website, add the name and email address of each person who is interested in helping, and add specific needs for meals, rides, etc.

The Lotsa Helping Hands system takes over from there. Members are automatically notified by email about the breast cancer survivors's calendar website and the needs that have been listed. They can see the group calendar, and volunteer for whatever fits their own situation. Volunteers receive automatic confirmations and reminders of their commitments

Other common symptoms of breast cancer include nipple discharge (often bloodstained), a tender or drawn in nipple, ulceration or swelling of the breast. Occasionally, the lymph nodes under the arm may also be swollen.

Helping breast cancer survivors in need of valuable assistance in day to day activities becomes organized and simple. Through an intuitive online interface that requires no training, volunteers can sign up for any number of events, view their current commitments, and be sent email reminders of upcoming obligations. Lotsa Helping Hands provides summary views of commitments as well as unassigned events, eliminating redundant assistance, missed commitments, and excessive administrative labor.
