The American Cancer Society states that even their normal daily life will be drastically affected by their treatment. If they have children, they might need an extra hand to take care of them because they can't beat this cancer alone. Their social life and work life will also change, they might be too sick to go into work and their friends might act differently towards them, knowing that they have cancer.
