Lost friends to cancer


Re: Lost friends to cancer

Hi Traveller, How are you? Well done on making it this far and getting through treatment. I've posted separately on the young BC section about friendship and survivorship. It would be lovely if your friends called or invited you to lunch or coffee etc wouldn't it - I mean how hard could that be? Treat you the same as before cancer (except that you may not be able to go out and party all day/night like you used to)- YET! What helped me (besides time) was work out what makes me happy, do the things I enjoy doing and be around people who understand cancer etc. In the process I made new friends and quality of life is much richer and meaningful. I managed to retain only a few friends (usually by email) from my life before cancer.
