During my time as a Youth First So- cial Worker, I have worked with many stu- dents impacted by cancer. This school year has been no exception, as I was di- agnosed with breast cancer myself in Ju- ly 2021. Here are a few ideas you may find helpful when coping with a cancer diagnosis. When first learning about a cancer diagnosis, you may be scared and con- fused. A fter the initial shock has worn off, start reading and asking questions. There are many educational books and articles available to help you understand the type of cancer you or a loved one is facing. There are support groups in the community that can help as well. Check them out! When going to doctor appointments, take another person with you who can as- sist with taking notes and asking ques- tions. The person with cancer can be overwhelmed at times, so having some- one else there for support is important. Bring a notebook and pen with questions you have thought of. I began keeping a daily/monthly calen- dar of all doctor appointments and tests. It has been a good way for me to look back to check dates for billing purposes. I also use the calendar as a journal where I re- cord how I feel on chemo days, as some days are better than others. Keep in mind that some people may not be sure how to react to someone else's cancer diagnosis. I told my Youth First supervisors, as well as school adminis- trators and my co-workers, about my di- agnosis at the start of the school year. I wanted them to be aware of what I would be going through, especially as I knew I would be losing my hair. I met with students individually to de- termine if they would be okay working with me. Some of them had parents or family members with cancer, and I did not want to cause additional trauma or stress. Most were receptive, and some check on me as much as I check on them. Develop a support system that includes family, friends, church community mem- bers, neighbors, peers, and co-workers. You will have your oncologist and oth- er medical support staff guiding you through treatment, but having the sup- port of loved ones is just as important. I can't do it all on my own, so I find it comforting to have others support me physically, mentally, and spiritually. While going through chemotherapy, my co-workers made goody bags on a regu- lar basis filled with items such as Chap- stick, hand and body lotion, puzzle books, snacks, etc. Cards of encouragement are always welcome; everyone loves getting mail! Finally, if you know someone with can- cer, ask them how you can help. It could be just listening to them, sharing a meal, helping with transportation to appoint- ments, going on walks together, or even helping with housework. Most important- ly, be flexible and patient with someone going through their cancer journey. Katherine S. Baker, LCSW, LCAC, is a Youth First Social Worker at Castle High School in Warrick County.
