Cancer Diagnosis? What Now?

When you have a cancer diagnosis, it is normal to feel frightened, sad and worried.
One of the first things to do is think about who in your life is a helping presence. It might be your spouse or partner, friends, faith community, support group or co-workers. Make a list of specific ways they can help.

If you are unsure of what to ask people to do, below are some questions to consider:

  • Who would I like to talk with about treatment decisions? Or join me at appointments?
  • Who can help me with practical support, such as figuring out work leave, meals, family care, driving or cost of care questions?
  • Who can help serve as a point person to keep other people updated?
  • Are there other people in my life that will also need help? Who can help them?
