United Hospital Center sees hundreds of cancer patients every year. In time for the holidays, they wanted to celebrate survivors and help lift the spirits of those still fighting the disease. Every day this week, specialists are talking to patients about different aspects of cancer survival.

Wednesday's topic was communication. While it may be easy to talk to close friends and family about anything, experts said it's hard for some to talk about their cancer diagnosis with anyone after they first hear the words but communication is actually very important.

Some things included talking with your loved ones but most importantly, being open with your doctors and healthcare providers. Some advice is to write a list of all questions you have for your doctor so that you get all the answers you need during treatment.
 
"It's important to always have a list of questions for your physician so that whatever's on your mind you can have answered. And also to communicate well with your health care providers so that the information that's necessary to provide seamless care to you at all times, is discussed," said Linda Carte, Director of Cancer Services.
 
The cancer survivorship series continues Thursday and Friday. All sessions start at 11 a.m. and all cancer patients and survivors are welcome.
