COPING WITH CANCER AND TREATMENT

People with cancer and their families vary in how they cope

The physical and emotional reactions to a cancer diagnosis and treatment can be overwhelming. Even close family and friends may not always understand the feelings a patient or family member faces. During this challenging time speaking to a counselor can help ease your anxiety and assist in developing tools to help you cope. A counselor can also assist you in finding helpful ways to communicate with family, friends, and your medical team.
