Coping with Cancer in Your Relationship

Is a life-threatening diagnosis endangering your relationship?

Life-threatening diseases and illnesses, like cancer, are never easy to cope with in any circumstance. When these illnesses come into your life, you are faced with the possibility of not surviving the sickness. Not only are you dealing with the unknown, but you have the doctor’s visits and medical bills to deal with. When you have to go to several follow-ups to see the progression, or regression, of the illness, you are having to take time off of work. When you take time off of work, you aren’t receiving as much income as you were before. With the increasing medical expenses, income is important to be able to pay off these debts. These effects of the illness can put stress not only on yourself but onto your loved ones as well. What can we do to move forward in our relationships when our loved one is dealing with a life-threatening illness.
