Talking with others

Once you have discussed treatment options with your doctor, you may want to talk them over with someone else, such as family or friends, specialist nurses, your family doctor, the Cancer Society, the hospital social worker or chaplain, your own religious or spiritual adviser or another person who has had a similar cancer experience.

Contact your local Cancer Society to talk to someone who's been through a similar experience through the Cancer Connect telephone peer support service or call the Cancer Information Helpline 0800 CANCER (226 237) for more information.
