If you find your feelings and emotions are overwhelming, or if you are becoming depressed, then it may be time to get professional help.
Read booklets about the emotional, physical and practical impacts of cancer and its treatment. Knowing what to expect can help you cope with cancer and life after treatment.
You’ll meet lots of people who will work together to help you make the right treatment decisions. Find out about their roles and how they’ll be able to help you.
When people come to our information centres, they might need advice, support, a chat, or information. We need volunteers to be there so people know they don’t have to face cancer alone.
What's happening near you? Find out about support groups, where to get information and how to get involved with Macmillan where you are.
Read about ways in which our Community users managed their emotions following their diagnosis. They talk about yoga, meditation and counselling.
Whether it is you or someone close to you who has been diagnosed with cancer, you’re likely to experience many emotions. Sharing your feelings can help you and others in your situation. Talk about it here.
