Continuity Proof

Let f: R-> R be a function that satisfies f(x+y) = f(x) + f(y) for all x,y in R. Suppose that f is continuous at some point c. Prove that f is continuous on R. How would you go about starting this proof?? I do not understand the f(x+y) = f(x)+f(y) thing. Does some point c make f continuous on R??
