CancerCare Coping Kit
We know how scary and stressful a cancer diagnosis can be. Our CANSA Cancercare Coping Kit offers information to empower & support you to deal with a cancer diagnosis, treatment, possible complications & changes in body image, emotions and social issues.
It also provides practical advice to you, your loved ones, caregivers and friends to help make your cancer journey easier to bear and to help you to take control, by making informed choices.
Our revised kits (2013) contain tips and advice from cancer Survivors, who know just how difficult it is to cope with cancer.
Should you wish to obtain a copy of the CD version of the Coping Kit, please contact the CANSA Care Centre closest to you.
