Cancer Care at home

Finding out you have cancer is usually a shock. When you’re diagnosed, you may experience a range of different emotions, including fear, anger and sadness. There’s often a lot to think about, too. When you’re starting a treatment plan, you may have worries about work, finances or family responsibilities. A cancer diagnosis affects the whole family and if someone you love is facing this situation, it’s an emotional time for you, too.  There can be a lot of uncertainty. Having the right support and cancer care in place will make all the difference.
