Charting Your Course : Main Menu : Seminar I - Taking Your Bearings

With the shock of a cancer diagnosis, many people feel "at sea". Serious illness is frightening. You may feel confused and upset by your symptoms. It's time to take your bearings and regain a sense of control over your life.

As you chart your course through cancer, you will need to understand your symptoms and communicate clearly with your health care team in order to get the best possible symptom relief. In some cases there are effective non-medical treatments you can learn to do yourself. In these readings you will find approaches to pain and symptom management, and suggestions for re-establishing control.
