Cancer's Impact on the Family and How to Cope
For young adults diagnosed with cancer, life is upended, and dreams are put on hold at a time when life should just be starting. Cancer’s reach extends beyond the patient, to include siblings and the family as they shift to survival mode, and attention is focused on the young adult with cancer. Siblings in particular can feel the heavy weight of the diagnosis, often masking their emotions to be strong for their family. They may feel overwhelmed as their own social and emotional needs are sidelined to take on additional chores and responsibilities at home and in school. Anxiety, anger, isolation, abandonment, resentment and hopelessness are just some of the feelings that may arise as treatment continues. In this 60-minute webinar we will talk about how the diagnosis impacts the young adult patient, their siblings, and the family unit, and provide some key tips and tools to help reduce stress, preserve normalcy, and improve the experience during a difficult and unfamiliar time.
