Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
How do I deal with financial pressures associated with the holidays - when I’m already broke from my cancer treatment?
Christina Bach, MSW, LCSW, Social Worker at the University of Pennsylvania, responds:
Get creative and put less emphasis on the amount spent on gifts as being a sign of how much you care for others. You have had enough on your plate, and coping with financial issues can be extraordinarily stressful.
All in all remember this season is not about how much or how little you spend.
