The Emotional Journey
Cancer is a physical illness, but it also takes an emotional toll. The emotional aspects of cancer diagnosis and treatment can have a profound impact on your well-being. There is a direct connection between a patient’s coping strategy and their cancer treatment outcomes. In fact, patients who are able to keep a more positive frame of mind and maintain a sense of hope and purpose during their treatment and recovery often have better outcomes.
