When someone in the whānau has cancer, there can be a lot of changes for everyone and some of them can be really challenging and difficult to understand.
And then there are the feelings that you have about your brother, sister, māmā or pāpā who may have cancer … we all react differently but you may be worried, angry, frightened and sad, just to name a few!
It’s important to know that these feelings are normal and there is help available for you through Kenzie’s Gift or though the Macmillan Cancer Support website.
The website also has tips to help if your friend, boyfriend or girlfriend has cancer. It’ll give you some information about supporting that person and ways of understanding your own feelings.
