When you are diagnosed with cancer in your 20s and 30s this can very quickly affect your friendships. You are most likely the first in your friendship group to be diagnosed with cancer and navigating this alongside trying to maintain relationships is really hard. So here is some information and advice that can help you.

After being diagnosed with cancer maintaining and even reestablishing relationships with your friends can be so hard. Some of them may say the 'wrong' thing, some may not even know what to say resulting in them becoming distant and unresponsive, and some may turn out to be those magical unicorn friends who get it *exactly right.*
