There’s a lot to take in. You could order a booklet about cancer and emotions to read and come back to in your own time, when you need it.
You might be thinking about what you can do to look after yourself. Some people find complementary therapies lift their spirits and help them relax and cope with stress.
We want to make sure we're there when you're diagnosed, through treatment, and beyond. Because life with cancer is still life, and we'll help you live it.
What's happening near you? Find out about support groups, where to get information and how to get involved with Macmillan where you are.

For carers, friends and families of people with a terminal diagnosis to discuss their emotions about the prospect of losing their loved ones, as well as practical issues about palliative care and end of life.
