Living with an Advanced Cancer: a Panel Discussion

Educational Support Meeting

As a result of advances in diagnostic techniques and treatments, people with advanced cancer can expect to live longer and with a better quality of life than ever before.  Despite such improvements, the diagnostic and treatment process can be stressful for individuals and families.  Managing treatment side effects and disease symptoms, dealing with disease uncertainty, contending with financial challenges, coping with the physical changes brought on by disease and treatment effects, and dealing with family dynamics are just a few of the possible issues that can arise over time.
