    The photo at the top of the page is really unhelpful. Hugs and embraces can be very uncomfortable (painful) to those going through radiation to any part of the upper body. Perhaps Mend After could find and use a photo illustrating caring in some way other than a hug? In addition, the pain can persist for months after surgery and/or radiation and family/friends need to always keep that in mind. Mend After could help get the word out, starting with using sensitive and appropriate illustrations. Thanks.

      Thank you so much for this thoughtful message. We completely agree. A warm embrace can be soothing to a body that’s been under assault. But for some patients in recovery, hugs might hurt. Chemotherapy can make arms tender, radiation burns can leave skin sensitive, and wounds may still be vulnerable after a recent surgery. Mend’s founder and 2x cancer endure-er reminds us: Don’t ignore your urge to hug. But before you hug a cancer patient, ask if it’s ok first. We share this tips like this on our homepage, in our advice section and also on our social media channels. Thank you for reminding us to continue shining a light on these important topics.
