Cancer – it’s tough enough dealing with your own emotions when the bombshell is dropped. All your energy is spent trying to come to terms with the news. But there are other people in your life and you have to deal with them, too. Some will be compassionate and caring, some overly protective. Still others will just be a pain in the butt. Dealing with others is not always easy. The good news is you have other people to deal with. Think how lonely it would be without them.
