Waiting…

by Gail Hamm, Program Director
Waiting to have the CT scan…

Waiting for the ultrasound…

Waiting for the biopsy…

Waiting for the results of all the tests…

Then waiting to start treatment…

Cancer is full of waiting and worrying; not knowing if the results of the tests will mean a reprieve, or if the results will start a new process of decision making. Each day is met with wondering…wondering what will happen next. At times, you can feel very alone.

When you are a client of Cancer Services, you can lean on your Client Advocate to find strength in uncertain times. Or you may share your concerns in a support group, knowing that others have experienced similar circumstances.

When others care, you do not have to feel alone even when you are waiting.
