Last Updated: August 1, 2014

After a diagnosis of cancer, many people find it difficult to get the emotional support they need. This is for different reasons including the fear and uncertainty cancer brings and the complexity of family relationships. This video offers guidance on how patients can navigate these challenges.

This video offers perspectives on this topic from both survivors and health care professionals. It is being offered through a four-part “Navigating Challenges” series for people newly diagnosed with cancer facing real-world barriers to high quality cancer care. This ASCO patient education video series was made possible by a grant from the LIVESTRONG Foundation to the Conquer Cancer Foundation.
