== SURVIVING CANCER ==
+
==Introduction==
 +
This wiki is the central resource of the microformats community. You'll find current versions of published microformat specifications, specification drafts and publishing patterns. The wiki also hosts development resources, such as brainstorming pages for new formats and issue tracking pages for all current and in-development microformats.

'''BODY'''
+
== Get Started==
 +
To get started with microformats:
-
It is automatic for a person to be depressed the moment a doctor diagnosed him/her having cancer, whatever kind it is, as long as the “cancer” word was there, it meant easily as death. But that would mostly imply to those who have Stage 4 cancer and might have less chance of recovering or even achieving cure. The patient would experience not only physical changes because of cancer, but also the mental and emotional portions would be severely damaged. A cancer patient doesn’t only need physical help, encouragement and words of hope and support would make greater results on recovering and fighting the said disease.
+
* First, be familiar writing your pages and applications with semantically rich, descriptive, ‘[[posh|<abbr title="Plain Old Semantic HTML">POSH</abbr>]]’ <abbr title="HyperText Mark-up Language">HTML</abbr>.
 +
* Learn about microformats from the [http://microformats.org/about/ about page], [http://microformats.org/ blog], [[press]], [[presentations]], [[books]], [[podcasts]], & [[screencasts]] pages.
 +
* Take a look at established specifications such as [[hcard|hCard]] and [[hcalendar|hCalendar]], and follow the [[hcard-examples|examples]] to start publishing microformats.
 +
* Have questions? Read the [[faq|frequently asked questions]] and see the [[glossary]] for terms and definitions. You can also post to the {{MicroformatsMailingList}}.
 +
* Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats [[events]].

Chemotherapy is indeed painful, but help greatly on destroying the cancer cells and promoting recovery for the patient. But the effects of chemotherapy, such as vomiting, nausea, fatigue, anemia, diarrhea, mouth sores, infertility and hair loss, are crucial for a patient’s mindset. Chemotherapy could be traumatic despite its curing capability for those who have cancer. Most patients would eventually feel like they are alone and hopeless at the prospect of cancer into their lives. What they need more aren’t just medicines or therapies but love and attention as well.
+
==Definition==
 +
Microformats are small patterns of HTML to represent commonly published things like [[hcard|people]], [[hcalendar|events]], [[hatom|blog posts]], [[hreview|reviews]] and [[rel-tag|tags]] in web pages.
-
The patient’s family should always be there on their side, giving comforting words and shows support and positivity. Family members or even friends shouldn’t be so negative in front of a patient. Cancer patients don’t want people to pity them, first and foremost. They don’t like pity from other people, but pure love and concern. They also don’t want to see the people around her so affected and depressed about their state that would only make them more stressed out and down. The whole family should act as though nothing was different and take good care of the person with cancer. Just like Angela Radd, leukemia (cancer in the blood/bone marrow) patient, survived cancer not only because of the hospitalization but because of her family/friends’ support. Especially her friends, who introduced her to elisa kit, which helped her on the way to recovery. Amanda Hale, an [http://www.rapidtest.com/products-elisakits.html elisa kit manufacturer], did some research and boosted Angela’s esteem that she can survive the disease. After months, almost years, Angela Radd recovered and now currently working on a famous bank in New York.

Microformats enable the publishing of higher fidelity information on the Web; the fastest and simplest way to provide feeds and APIs for the information in your website.
-
The mind can help a lot while recovering from an illness, the quote “MIND OVER MATTER” works for real. If a patient believes she/he can survive cancer, then she would have the determination to fight the disease and undergo necessary procedures. Support, attention and love are the main keys into helping a cancer patient believe in real-life miracles. Hope, can also be found only in God, and faith will be the greatest weapon to win this sort of fight.

Please start with the introduction page and read how-to-play before making any edits.

Introduction

This wiki is the central resource of the microformats community. You'll find current versions of published microformat specifications, specification drafts and publishing patterns. The wiki also hosts development resources, such as brainstorming pages for new formats and issue tracking pages for all current and in-development microformats.

Get Started

To get started with microformats:

Definition

Microformats are small patterns of HTML to represent commonly published things like people, events, blog posts, reviews and tags in web pages.

Microformats enable the publishing of higher fidelity information on the Web; the fastest and simplest way to provide feeds and APIs for the information in your website.

How to contribute

Do you want to help take microformats to the next level? You can:

This wiki has a number of enhancements to assist development and contributions to microformats. Before you start editing, see the wiki introduction page for instructions.

Specifications

The list of current, stable Microformats open standard specifications.

If you're tempted to try your hand at writing a microformat please read the process page first!

Drafts

Drafts are newer microformats, for which the specifications haven't been completed yet. Drafts are somewhat mature in the development process (see exploratory-discussions for additional efforts that are not as far along in the process). The stability of these documents cannot be guaranteed, and implementers should be prepared to keep abreast of future developments and changes. Please watch the wiki pages for updates.

Design Patterns

Design patterns are common uses of markup across microformats.

Exploratory Discussions

See: exploratory-discussions for details of research and analysis of real-world examples, existing formats, and brainstorming of possible new microformats, per the microformats process.

Examples

Resources

See resources.

User centric development

Shared work areas

Tools, test cases, additional research

The first place to look for examples, code, and test cases is in the pages for each individual microformat. There are only a few cross-cutting tools and services that need to process more than one microformat. That section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

Microformats wiki translations

You may read and edit microformats articles in many other languages:
