Cancer is a disease that hits the patients and their family hard. Accepting the diagnosis and adjusting to having cancer treatment incorporated into their daily lifestyle routine requires time. Interpersonal interaction may also change as individuals in the family take on new roles. It is an emotional journey for the entire family and every member needs ample support to manage the challenges that comes along.
At CanHOPE, we strive to provide you with the information you need to clarify any negative thoughts that comes along with uncertainties that bother you, hence empowering you with the ability to manage your thinking and better cope with the cancer journey.
Besides providing you with increased awareness on your condition through patient and caregiver education, we also organise different programmes, workshops and various coordination services to help you and your loved ones adjust to the changes in their treatment journey.
Maintaining good relationships is tantamount to your well-being at all times. At times of illness, building trust in relationship can be challenging as ones emotion is most sensitive.
We understand that you are looking for a professional team whom you can trust your health to – from physicians, counsellors, therapists, dietitians to our very own Guest Relations Executives.
