cancer, you may feel confused, alone, and scared. Your loved ones may feel this
way too. You are not alone. Others are facing the same struggles, and they know
what you are going through. Many of them are feeling the same way.

Get the support you need. Spend time with
people who care about you, and let them help you. Talk to your hospital social
worker if you need help with bills or have other worries. Your local American
Cancer Society also may be helpful.
Take good care of yourself.
Get plenty of rest, eat healthy meals, and get regular exercise.
Talk about your feelings, and find a support group. Other people
who have NHL can help you, and your experience can help them.
everything you can to stay positive. Set a goal each day to do something
special for yourself or someone else.
If your emotions are too much to handle, be sure to tell
your doctor. You may be able to get counseling or other types of help.
