Living with Cancer During and After Treatment

Cancer Is a Family Affair

Cancer isn’t just something that impacts your body, it can affect your entire family. That is why, from the moment a diagnosis happens, it is important to get treatment for your cancer — and get support for you, your family, caregivers and friends.

Just getting through treatment can be draining for everyone involved. When you also consider stresses like handling everyday personal needs, answering others’ questions about a diagnosis, and dealing with work or home life — everything can begin to feel like an exhausting hurdle. It does not take long for these stresses to devolve into anger, depression, isolation and argument between patients, family and caregivers.
