People react in different ways when they learn they have a woman's cancer.
Feelings can be muddled and change quickly. This is quite normal and there is no right or wrong way to feel. It may be helpful to talk about your feelings with your partner, family members, friends, or with a counsellor, social worker, psychologist or your religious/spiritual adviser. Talking to other people with a woman's cancer may also help.
Our Health Promotions Educator is available to link in with those who make contact with NZGCF and in the future we aim to utilise Facebook and potentially other forums to continue this support.
These online networks would be open to women at any stage of their gynaecological cancer journey to receive support, advice, advocacy, information, referrals and friendship. As we grow, we would like to build specific support groups for women dealing with different types of gynaecological cancer.
In the meantime if you would like to get in touch with our Educator, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
