November Virtual Hangout: Coping with Cancer Emotions

November 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

Cancer is a big #$%^&* ordeal. Understanding the typical emotional experience can help you appreciate that you are not alone, and help you and loved ones better anticipate—and manage—the days ahead. Most importantly, hearing from experts and those that have been there can help you learn how to cope with it all, making cancer a little less of a big ordeal.
