How To Find Solace Online After A Cancer Diagnosis
A cancer diagnosis is life changing and even when you are surrounded by a network of support from family and friends, you may struggle with loneliness and feeling as if no one really understands what you are going through. As a result, it may be tempting to isolate yourself from the outside world and try to face your challenges alone. While this is a natural reaction and part of the coping process, seeking support and accepting help from loved ones can help you get through the most difficult parts of your journey with cancer.
While physical support from family, friends, and coworkers can be invaluable, here are a few reasons why you may find that social media is a great place to seek support and share your journey with others:

You may already be part of a local cancer support group and even though the connections you make during your meetings are important, making more connections can be beneficial during your journey. Whether you join a cancer support group on Facebook or decide to share your journey with cancer, you may find that friends and family have experienced some of the same highs and lows as you.
