Coping with changes
When you are first diagnosed with cancer, you might feel overwhelmed, like you can’t cope with so much to learn and so many decisions to make. For most people, cancer changes everything.
Your emotions and cancer
Everyone reacts to a cancer diagnosis in their own way. You may cope better if you understand the emotional effects of cancer. You may also be able to help loved ones who are feeling anxious.
Talking about cancer
There isn’t a right or wrong way to talk about cancer. But it’s good to talk. When people know what you’re going through, they usually want to help.
Sometimes family relationships can be negatively affected by a cancer diagnosis. But other families grow stronger. When you have cancer, your role in your family may change.
Feeling your best
A wellness plan can make you feel better by helping you deal with the side effects of cancer, improve physical strength, manage stress and reduce your risk of developing a second cancer.
