WebMD recently published an article on how to handle being told that you have cancer — again. This can be incredibly overwhelming news; but once you get past the initial shock, there are key facts you should focus on to help you get through the rest.
When you’ve overcome cancer once, you’re excited to get back to “normal” life, including work, family, friends and other things that you weren’t able to focus on while undergoing treatment. These things don’t have to stop, though; take time to assess the situation, and focus on these facts:

2. No one can say exactly how much time you have.
3. Good care matters.
4. Quality of life should be a priority.
