Would you like to better manage the stressors in your life? Just like everyone else, cancer survivors experience stress in their lives. In addition to normal life stress, cancer survivors must also manage treatment side effects, changes in social, physical, and emotional functioning, and worry about their risk of or recurrence. These concerns can add to the stress in their lives. Research has shown that high levels of stress can impact health in multiple ways.
