Emotional support for cancer survivors

We can help you with any distress you're feeling, whether it is related to your cancer diagnosis or not.

Most individuals dealing with cancer experience significant distress at some point. Distress is normal and treatable, and can occur at any time: after diagnosis, during treatment, after treatment is completed or any time in between.

Common types of distress include: 

  • Anxiety or nervousness 
  • Fear of recurrence
  • Frequent worrying
  • High fatigue
  • Loss of motivation
  • Depressed mood
  • Social/family problems
  • Problems sleeping
