COPING IF YOUR PARTNER'S CANCER RETURNS

Support if your partner's cancer returns

There are many options to access support for you to help. Experiencing a cancer diagnosis in your immediate family is a distressing event which we hope will never happen again. Unfortunately for some mums and our families their cancer spreads to another part of the body.

 

When this happens, it means the cancer is no longer curable and is described as either Metastatic, Secondary or Stage IV cancer.

 

Treatment options remain available and prognosis vary widely depending on the type of cancer, grade and where it has spread to. The purpose of treatment becomes one of controlling further growth rather than cure and will continue until such a time as it is deemed no longer effective.
