Get Support

The American Cancer Society is a good starting place to find the support you and your family may need throughout your treatment and afterward.

Let your family and friends know what you're going through. Tell them what they can do to help you. They may want to help but don’t know how.

You may also want to join a support group. That’s a good way to meet people who know what you're going through, because they’ve been through it, too. 

Also, consider talking with a counselor. That could help you handle the emotions that can come with having cancer.
