CAN­CER Coun­cil WA (CCWA) chief ex­ec­u­tive Susan Rooney says hav­ing can­cer does not have to de­fine peo­ple’s Christ­mas. Ms Rooney said it could be a dif­fi­cult time of year for peo­ple af­fected by can­cer but there were ways to cope and enjoy Christ­mas. “Try­ing to main­tain tra­di­tions that aren’t prac­ti­cal can cre­ate un­nec­es­sary stress,” she said. “It is im­por­tant to let peo­ple know if you’re find­ing it dif­fi­cult to cope and ac­cept help.”
