There are many types of cancer treatments. Some are quite taxing on the mind and body and others, perhaps less. Cancer poses many known and unknown challenges — the disease alone can be daunting to wrap your head around, and treatments may drain both physical and emotional levels.
Over the years, we have assisted many people through their cancer treatment recovery. We are one in a handbag of tools used to help people through this challenging time. While much of the supportive care we provide helps people manage the practical parts of their day to day lives, we also advocate, share education, and acknowledge our clients’ feelings — it’s all about improving quality of life.
It’s in advocating for others that we have learned much from the doctors, nurses and nutritionists who provide care for our clients. Here are some tidbits of information I hope may be helpful for people managing their cancer recovery.
