It is devastating when you hear those three words YOU. HAVE. CANCER.
You are then confronted with deciding when and who to tell your friends and family you have cancer as they will have their own emotional reactions. Deciding what to say is difficult because you are worried about how they will react and whether they will treat you differently. Usually once people understand and recover from the shock of your news they can be a great source of support. Others may act weird, cannot cope and avoid you. They may have no idea what to say or do, or be worried about saying the wrong thing or upsetting you.
Then there is your wider social circle, like work colleagues or sport teammates. It’s up to you to decide who you do or don’t tell that you’ve got cancer, and how much you tell them about what’s going on.
