How to Cope with a Loved One’s Cancer Diagnosis

So, you’ve just gotten the news. Someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer. So now what? First, educate yourself on what they are facing. The internet is a great resource to find out general information. Next, see if they would like you to accompany them to the doctor. Often going for check-ups or procedures can be very anxiety-producing and scary. Having someone there with them might make them feel a bit better. Next, ask them how you can be there to help, but don’t be offended if they tell you they prefer to be left alone. Dealing with their diagnosis may require some time alone while they process what they are facing. Read on at eHow for more ideas to help you cope with your loved one’s new diagnosis of cancer.
