When going through cancer, remember to involve support from your friends. Research shows that friends are an essential part of healing your mind, body, and spirit while fighting the disease. You also increase your chances of living longer by getting help from people you care about.

According to David Spiegel, M.D., Associate Chair of Psychology at Stanford University, men who are married tend to live longer because they talk about their feelings with their wife and feel more comfortable crying. Women who regularly nurture relationships with their girlfriends also tend to live longer. Female time invested with girlfriends produces more serotonin in the brain, which helps to combat depression.
