Helpful Resources for Cancer Patients and Caregivers

While a person experiences a variety of emotions, when a person first learns that he/she has cancer or a blood disorder/disease, the primary concern is survival. As treatment begins, however, new issues become important. Some of these include relationships with others, side effects from treatments, and nutrition and diet. Living with cancer or a blood disease/disorder is challenging, and it is best to be educated about issues surrounding survival in order to live a full and productive life.
