A brain tumour diagnosis affects an entire family, and can be a difficult journey for everyone involved. However, these tough times can often strengthen and maintain a family’s relationship. Through support and love, families make the journey of a brain tumour one of strength and courage.
When you let your family know how you feel (emotionally or physically), they will be able to better offer the support you need. Further, family members can offer words of encouragement, share the pain, and help to manage stress. Ultimately, throughout the journey of a brain tumour, the love of a family can help reduce the difficulty.
On this International Day of the Family we salute all families facing the journey with a brain tumour and say ‘Thank You’ to everyone supporting and caring for a loved one facing this disease.
