Your relationships and cancer

Cancer can change the relationships in your life. People you know will all react to your cancer and cope with your diagnosis and treatment in their own way. They can struggle with strong feelings, such as fear or even anger or guilt. They too are dealing with change and upset, even though they’re not the person with cancer. Change takes time to adjust to, and it can be stressful.

Understanding that your relationships may change can help you find ways to keep them healthy, strong and supportive for everyone.
