Suburban Hematology Oncology and the Center for Cancer Care knows that being diagnosed with cancer can cause a variety of emotions and concerns, the primary of which is survival. As treatment begins, however, new issues become important. Some of these include relationships with others, side effects from treatments, and nutrition and diet. Living with cancer or a blood disease or disorder is challenging, and it is best to be educated about issues surrounding survival in order to live a full and productive life.
