3 Ways You Can Help 2 Best Friends Change The Lives Of Cancer Patients

A few months ago, as I was bopping around the interwebs, I came across the story of Chris and Dillon. The two have been best friends forever and have stuck together through thick and thin, especially when Chris’ cancer came back. Not willing to sit in a classroom and watch his friend die, Dillon dropped out of college and posted a video explaining how he would help Chris complete his bucket list.

Are you crying yet? I know I was. On their website, they have posted their bucket list of over a 100 tasks, which they are well on their way to completing. Some include; lifting weights with The Rock, pillow fights with strangers, and going to a ropes course. And all of their adventures are documented through their vlogs. But, their bucket list is not only serving them. A large portion of the list is serving others. From giving homeless people meals and water to handing random people in traffic food, the duo is trying to make the best of the time they have together.

But they know that they are not the only ones going through this horrible battle. Thus, they decided it was time to move beyond themselves. Chris and Dillon have made it their life’s mission to help others accomplish their bucket lists. Right now, they are working with a young girl named Lexi, who almost a year ago, was diagnosed with stage four Ewing's Sarcoma. With an army of people supporting and funding her list, Chris and Dillon are helping to make sure that Lexi, and others, live out the one life that we all have.

But they cannot do it alone. They need your help. There are three amazing ways you can get involved --

1. Follow Their Social Media

Simple as that. Most of their content is posted on Youtube, but they also have Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Follow their journey and watch as Chris and Dillon check off their bucket list and help others.

2. Donate

This is a full-time job. With your donations, this helps to alleviate the financial stress and help more parts of the bucket lists be accomplished. They have a Patreon account which you can donate to, and not only do you get to help people complete their bucket lists, but there is also exclusive content and prizes, just for you.

3. Join The Bone Marrow Registry

Number four of Chris’ bucket list was to set a world record. On March 31, 2018, they did just that. 3, 715 people joined the bone marrow registry! This registry is extremely close to my heart and school community. In January 2016, our community felt the loss of Andrew Smith, a Butler graduate, who passed away from cancer. After hearing his story, I knew I wanted to help. On January 21, 2017, I joined the bone marrow registry and you can, too. You don’t even have to leave your house. Visit Be the Match and have a registry kit sent to you. All you have to do is swab your checks and send the test back in, simple as that. The hardest facts for me, are knowing that there are not nearly enough people registered and that more often than not, family members are NOT the best candidates. It is the kind heart of a stranger that can be life-saving.

In April of this year, Chris has found a bone marrow match and is currently undergoing treatment. Continue to follow their story through their social media.

    12 Ways To Save Money During The Summer When All You Want Is To Spend It

    Saving is important year round, but it's most important in the summer

    144
    views

    Over the summer, everyone normally has more free time than during the year, and that means more time to spend more money. Saving money over the summer is important, not only so you can be prepared to pay for things in the future, but also so you can enjoy your summer and no be stressed about how much money you've spent. Saving money is something that should happen year round, but it's especially important to do in the summer.

    1. Create a budget

    Starting the summer off on the right foot is super important to stay on track throughout the rest of the summer. A budget is something that you should have year round, but it's important to adjust it for your summer plans.

    2. And stick to it

    Not only do you have to make a budget, but you have to stick to it. If you don't follow your budget, you're wasting time and money, and it's hard to keep on top of finances.

    3. Take advantage of student discounts

    During the summer, college students find themselves with a lot more free time than in the school year. When you're planning what to do with your extra time, make sure to look if the place offers student discounts or not. Why pay full price when you don't have to?

    4. Don't always go out to eat

    College students tend to spend time with their friends going out for food or for drinks, and that adds up fast. If you have friends over to cook dinner, it can be healthier and cheaper to do.

    5. Sublet

    If you have an apartment you're not going to be staying in, or need to stay in Columbus, it's beneficial both ways to sublet. Neither way do you have to pay full price on an apartment, and any discount, no matter how small, saves you money

    6. Take day trips

    Obviously, no one wants to stay in one place the whole summer, but travel is super expensive. By going on day trips you get to see more of the state or city, but you don't have to pay for lodging overnight. It's a good way to get out without eating into your budget.

    7. Walk around

    Columbus has great parks and trails that not enough people think about using when they're planning what they want to do. If you walk around outside, you can spend as much time you want there and you don't have to pay anything.

    8. Split costs with friend

    Do both of you need a Hulu and a Netflix account? Why not share the costs and the passwords with each other, so that you both can save some extra cash in the future. This doesn't just have to be with streaming services, but it can apply to food and parking costs as well.

    9. Don't impulsively buy big items

    Maybe you've worked a ton recently to start saving for summer, or you have graduation money flowing in. You feel like it doesn't matter how much you spend, but it does. If you hold off on those purchases, and you save your money, you'll be in a better spot financially at the end of the summer.

    10. Get a job

    The obvious one. If you're doing an unpaid internship or your normal job isn't offering you many hours, then getting a second job where you can work to have a little more money can help you achieve your savings goal.

    11. Don't be too hard on yourself

    The hardest part of setting goals is when you don't achieve them. Even if you haven't saved exactly as much as you wanted, making even a small change can help your financial wellbeing and can be enough to make small changes in the future.

    12. Don't force yourself to make big changes

    Everyone's saving tips to Millennials are to stop getting coffee every single day from places like Starbucks. While cutting down on spending in these ways will greatly help you save money, it's not the only thing that will help. There's no reason to make yourself miserable in order to follow the rules of someone else for a small change financially.
