The diagnosis of cancer in a patient, does not only affect himself, but also his relatives with various modes. The care of a cancer patient creates multiple needs to these persons and gives rise to various psychosocial problems. In the first chapter, of the present study, a brief record of the major needs as well as of the disturbance of familial equilibrium is recorded and a review of the literature concerning the ways of coping is presented. In the second chapter is presented our research. The purpose of this research was, to investigate the ways of coping, which adopt the relatives of a cancer patient. In this pilot research, 36 relatives of cancer patient were enrolled. These persons responded at the «Ways of Coping» questionnaire (Lazarus and Folkmann, 1984) adopted in Greek by Karadimas (1998). The differences among the sex, the educational level and the age are discussed in respect of the factors-strategies. The study revealed no statistical significant differences. Nevertheless, the results and the deductions of this study are indicative. The investigation of the Ways of Coping is very important; in order to better understand the human behavior. The improved adaptation of the persons, which take care of cancer patients, will result to a better care and an essential support of their patient.
