Dating a person with cancer mydatingupdates com

Hide under a rock until your post-chemo hair grows back?

As a professional oncology social worker at Cancer Care, I have found that there is no right or wrong when addressing the challenges of dating but there are ways to provide support along the way.First I visited forums where cancer patients and their significant others discussed the challenges of dating after cancer.As it turns out, men and women both struggle with identifying the best time to tell a new love interest about their cancer history."One of the thoughts that I had — especially after the surgery — was, 'Who's going to want to date me now that I have this thing?'" says Dena T., a 44-year-old freelance writer from Austin, TX who went through a bilateral mastectomy and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2006.
