Initial Reactions - The Shock
A brain tumour diagnosis effects everybody in different ways whether you are a patient, family member, relative, friend or work colleague.
There will be a wave of different emotional feelings and all the practical issues to consider – my own son aged 13 at the time just said ” I feel numb “
Everybody is different and there is no right or wrong way to feel.
