BC Cancer - Fall 2017 - 12

Supporting a

Transformative
Experience
Helping families cope with
cancer in the Fraser Valley

W

e all know that a
cancer diagnosis
means adjusting to
a new reality about
your physical health. But hearing
the words "you have cancer" brings
significant emotional challenges, too.
Fortunately, the BC Cancer
Agency's Patient and Family
Counselling (PFC) Services are
here to help. At each of BC Cancer's
six centres across the province,
PFC Services play an integral
role in improving the emotional
health of people newly diagnosed
with cancer.
Sandy Faulks, professional
practice leader at BC Cancer's
