Waiting to have the CT scan…
Waiting for the ultrasoundâ€¦
Waiting for the biopsyâ€¦
Waiting for the results of all the testsâ€¦
Then waiting to start treatmentâ€¦
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 wonderingâ€¦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.
