Coping During the Holidays
Holidays are traditionally a time to celebrate. People coping with cancer, though, may feel “out of step” from the rest of the world during this time. The holiday season can prompt new questions, such as, “How do I take care of the holiday rush and myself at the same time?” “How can I celebrate when I have so many other things on my mind?” And, “What will my life be like next year?”
For people diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers, CancerCare offers several helpful publications about how to cope with cancer during the holidays. Read our fact sheet, “Coping with Cancer During the Holidays,” and our Connect® booklet, For Caregivers: Coping with Holidays and Special Occasions . You can also listen to a podcast or telephone replay of our Connect® Education Workshop, For Caregivers: Coping with Cancer During the Holidays.
