They have put together top tips to help talk about cancer.

A summary of the AXA PPP booklet is below

  1. There is no right way when it comes to the language you use to describe how you feel.  Let others understand what works for you
  2. Let people know how you’d like them to respond when you’re feeling down. This can make it easier to get the support you need.
  3. Practising what you want to say can help you keep control.
  4. It’s also a good idea to let your work know how you want to talk about your cancer.
  5. Take the time you need to think about what the next phase of your life looks like. Then, importantly, let your partner and loved ones know.
  6. You might find comfort in speaking with other people going through the same thing for example
    • A group of people at work who are living with or have had cancer
    • A charity support group or a network of people with the same type of cancer as you that you meet at the hospital.
