What to write to someone who has cancer

In the age of email and text messages, a handwritten note or card is an especially thoughtful gesture. Taking the time to write (and mail) a note shows you care.

Life with Cancer

Living with cancer isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s rarely easy. Many people struggle with a range of different symptoms and side effects, both physical and emotional.

In addition to making you feel unwell, living with cancer is expensive! Even if you live in a place with public healthcare (like the United Kingdom or Canada), the costs of travel, meals, and special accommodations during treatment can add up quickly. If you live in a country with privatised care, the costs can be even more staggering.

You might also find that living with cancer can be – frankly – a little boring. Frequent hospital visits, recovery days at home, and long chemotherapy sessions can all begin to feel tedious. Many people miss seeing friends from work, or feeling able to go about their daily lives as usual.

“Sexual Problems are an Unmet Need” – Cancer, Sex and Intimacy with Dr. Leslie Schover

We’ve talked about lots of practical issues that cancer patients deal with, but one topic we’ve neglected is cancer and sex. Contrary to popular belief, sex and intimacy don’t have to stop when cancer enters the picture, and in this episode, we explore some helpful tips for navigating the world of sex and relationships in the midst of illness. 

Sex and Cancer; Cancer Companion Podcast

Welcome to Episode 2 of Cancer Companion!

This week, we’re talking about sex.

There’s no doubt that living with cancer changes things in your life, but a diagnosis doesn’t mean that sex and intimacy should be completely off limits. In fact, we know that many couples worry about sex, but feel too nervous to talk to their doctors about it.

In this episode, we speak with Clinical Psychologist Dr. Leslie Schover. Leslie is the Founder of Will2Love; an organisation that helps cancer patients to navigate sexuality and fertility through evidence-based self-help programs, access to telehealth advice, patient forums, and psychological counselling. We ask Leslie why sex might change during the cancer journey, and what you can do to cope with these changes – on your own, or with a partner.
