Cancer: A defining experience?
from U.S. News & World Report
The pink ribbons that abound in October have come to symbolize breast cancer awareness and celebrate cancer survivorship. However, these ribbons should also serve as a reminder of the work that needs to be done to address the emotional impact of cancer. Around 40 percent of those living with cancer experience significant emotional distress, including feelings of depression and anxiety. While research also tells us that most people who are post-treatment are no more likely to experience psychological distress than those who haven't been through cancer, post-treatment can be a vulnerable time for cancer survivors, with signs of depression often going unrecognized and untreated.
