Sometimes, it’s difficult to explain to how you’re feeling – even your closest friends – because they’re not going through the same experience as you. Finding a network of support and people who understand what it’s like can make a big difference but there are also ways that you can support yourself to manage your emotions effectively. You can find a selection of resources below to help with this.

Many people seek out local Cancer support groups to find others who are living with a cancer diagnosis, and our Helpline can help you find a group in your area if you need advise. Keeping in touch with our Penny Brohn community is another great way of finding on-going support.
