Handling the Holidays with Cancer
A KidneyCAN Town Hall Event
The holidays can be a stressful and hectic time of year. Coping with cancer at the same time can be overwhelming. We spoke with a panel of experienced patients and caregivers, along with medical professionals, to share strategies to support your overall wellbeing during the holiday season.
Experienced Patients, Caregivers, and Medical Professionals Offer Their Best Holiday Strategies
Watch our Town Hall event with panelists who understand the challenges of kidney cancer, moderated by Frank Eady, a genitourinary social worker from Emory Winship Cancer Center. Our session had three topics:
“But We Always …” : Managing Holiday Expectations and Energy
Feeling Your Best (Even When It’s Not That Great)
Banish the Bah Humbugs: Keeping Up Your Holiday Spirits
Panelists included experienced patients and caregivers, along with a medical oncologist, a dietician, and a nurse living with kidney cancer.
You’re not alone this holiday season.
We at KidneyCAN know how challenging it can be to handle busy seasons and special events when you are also living with cancer. We hope the ideas presented in our Town Hall help you have a more enjoyable season.
