7 Tips for Making Your Solo Hospital Visit Better During COVID-19

Appointments Alone

Under normal circumstances, attending your first treatment at the hospital after being newly-diagnosed with breast cancer, can be an overwhelming and anxious experience. There are so many unknowns and it’s the start of what will arguably be the most trying experience of your life. Today, with strict regulations surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic in place, it’s even harder.

We’ve heard from many women in our community who have to show up to their appointments alone and scared vs. having someone physically there to offer much-needed support and even a shoulder to cry on. Yes, it’s important to consider the why here – to ensure hospitals remain a safe and functional place for the sick to get better, but that still leaves many people feeling vulnerable and further isolated.

With this in mind, we’ve put together a little list of ways to make your solo hospital visit a little bit brighter. And repeat after us: This too shall pass.

We trust that you are taking self-isolation seriously. Thank you. But not everyone is. And there is something you can do to help change that. Will you join us in urging your friends, family, neighbours, coworkers, old classmates and anyone else you can think of to #StayHomeForCancer? Click here for more details.
