This booklet has been prepared to help you understand more about the emotional impact of cancer.
A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event. We hope this booklet will help you understand the range of reactions that people may have. It offers suggestions for adjusting to the diagnosis and coping during and after treatment, as well as information about support services.
As a cancer diagnosis affects not only you, but also your family and friends, this booklet provides practical tips on how to talk to others about cancer and how they can help.
This booklet does not need to be read from cover to cover - just read the parts that are useful to you. You may also like to pass this booklet to your family and friends for their information.
