How to talk about cancer can be very touchy. If you’re the person facing a diagnosis, you want to communicate the right information without giving too much information. You want to be honest, but also not scare your loved ones.

For caregivers and friends, sometimes you don’t know what to say. You have your own emotions about it but don’t want to make your loved to have to worry about how you’re handling it.

At Cancer Services, we know this is an issue. We work with people facing cancer to provide tips and talking points and also offer the community some ideas on how to support someone through cancer.

In this episode, Julie talks with Lindy Milligan, Cancer Services' Survivorship Coordinator and a 10-year cancer survivor who was diagnosed in her 40s when she had 4 children ranging from 3rd grade to a freshman in college. 

We hope you find this conversation one that helps you feel equipped to have helpful conversations regarding cancer, cancer treatment and how to best support someone who is going through a diagnosis.

For people diagnosed with cancer, see our article: When You are Diagnosed: Communicating with Friends and Family.

For caregivers, see our ‘How to Support Someone Through Cancer: What to Say, What Not to Say’ article.
