Coping with Cancer

It helps to know you are not alone.

 

A diagnosis of lymphoma undoubtedly comes with a huge feeling of being overwhelmed. Once you absorb the medical details of what your diagnosis means and what kind of treatment you will need, you may be left wondering about the other things – things like:

  • How do I tell people about my diagnosis?
  • How do I deal with all of the emotions that come with finding out I have cancer?
  • Is there any financial assistance that is available to me to help pay for the treatment I need?
  • What happens after treatment?
  • What happens as the cancer advances?

You will find support on all of these topics, and more, in this section of the Web site.
