Coping through the Holidays | Living Your Best With Advanced Cancer

The holiday season can be a mixture of excitement, joy, anticipation, stress, anxiety, fear, fatigue… the list goes on. It can change amongst each holiday and year by year. This is a conversation about ways to navigate this time of year and how to create opportunities for yourself and your support network to capitalize on what everyone is needing, wanting and hoping for during a time that may be really difficult.
