Breast cancer is a life-changing experience. Understandably, you can feel as though your life has been turned upside down – it can certainly impact all aspects of your life. This section addresses some of the emotional and practical concerns that are common to many women with breast cancer. As well, although everyone has their own way of coping, some coping techniques are suggested which you may find helpful.

It can be very helpful to speak with someone who understands what you are going through. All members of our Breast Cancer Support & Information Team have had a diagnosis of breast cancer and know first-hand how it can impact your life.
