All ages, all stages. From the moment of diagnosis through treatment and beyond, the effects of cancer aren’t only physical – there is a profound emotional and social impact as well. Joining a community of people who have experienced cancer firsthand can decrease the sense of isolation and empower you as you live with cancer.
The impact of cancer extends beyond the person who has been diagnosed. Learning to balance the need to provide care and support with everyday responsibilities is something no one should have to face alone.
