Dealing with change
Finding out you or someone you love has cancer brings many changes.
Whether you’re newly diagnosed, in active treatment, or are caring for someone with cancer, you will probably need to deal with many practical issues, make tough decisions and cope with a range of emotions.
There are many ways that you can cope. No one can predict exactly how cancer will affect day-to-day life. While you can’t control the future, you can think about what changes may happen and how you would deal with them if they arise.
We all need our own personal support system, but no matter how good your own personal support system is, it’s not the same as connecting with other survivors.
