7 Tips for dealing with relatives
- Always be aware that relatives receive little or no attention in the normal medical system!
- They have had daily contact with the patient since the time of the discovery of the cancer and have had to endure difficult situations with them.
- They need attention and an open ear for their concerns, fears and anxieties.
- They may need pointing out of their own needs, because it is important that they keep themselves healthy, since they are needed so much.
- Help them figure out those needs and little feel-good events, and take their word for it that they’ll actually get to implementing them!
- Realize that the disease has shaken up the whole family system and thus there is no one in the family and closer environment who is not affected.
- Help everyone in the system to deal with their own finiteness so that they can devote themselves more to life and recovery.

Chief of training department
Elke Wollschon began early on to ask herself what triggers illness and especially cancer. In her search for answers, she completed several trainings in the areas of personality development, trauma processing, nutrition, body intelligence, etc. She has been sharing the resulting answers for over 15 years in lectures and workshops, mainly in Asia, which was her home for over 20 years.
In an honorary capacity, she has been supporting the Malaysian society “Cansurvive Malaysia” for years.
It is her special concern to lead people into personal responsibility and to draw from it the strength, motivation and inspiration for a self-determined life.
