Over the years I've lost count of the times people have approached me for advice about how to handle conversations and relationships with people they care about who have been diagnosed with cancer. For the friend, associate, colleague, partner, child, parent etc.. it is hard to know what to do, what to say, what not to say, what not to do.... and the list goes on.
I've learned from first hand experience (fortunately, or unfortunately) what the best ways to approach situations like this are.
I remember the first time I danced with cancer, I was given 6 months to live and visitors were awkward in my presence. Conversations didn't just flow like they used to. People didn't know if it was ok to ask me about what was going on. People were scared to mention the "C" word, and what hurt me more than all of that... people stopped touching me ie. no more hugs! What I needed the most was being withheld from me from fear of maybe 'catching' something or offending me in some way. But even hugs can be either tools for healing or tools for your own grieving. So even the way you offer a hug is important at this critical time of need.
So... I'd love to support, resource and empower you in handling these situations more confidently.
I'm offering you the opportunity to join me for a free online discussion where I'll open up this conversation about how to support someone with cancer, and how to manage your own anxiety, worry and fear. I will share my wisdom and insights with you and you can ask questions to gain further support.
So if you or someone you know could benefit from learning how to best support someone with cancer (even if it's you), join me online on Tuesday, 13th October (13 is my lucky number and October is breast cancer awareness month) at 7.30pm.
When you register, you'll receive all the details you'll need to join me. If you can't make this time, when you register, you will receive access to the recording.
Share this and invite your friends and loved ones - let's take the guesswork out of how best to navigate how to support someone with cancer.
