Introduction
Every cancer disease is a huge challenge for the patient. It is associated with many changes in the personal life of each patient. The dis-ease forces a person to change their lifestyle and reorganise their life plans. A failed diagnosis triggers many negative emotions, from anxiety through anxiety, anger, a life-threatening condition, and even depression. All these symptoms are reflected in the process of ac-cepting the disease. Only a high level of adaptation among patients determines the growth and maintenance of high quality of life, which is an important determinant of effective oncological treatment.

Aim of the study
To assess the level of acceptance of life with cancer during systemic treatment.

Material and methods
In order to carry out the assessment of acceptance of neoplastic disease, the diagnostic survey method was used. The study included 300 patients treated in the West Pomeranian Oncology Centre in Szczecin (Poland), of which approximately 70% were women and 30% men. The average age of the respondents was 53.17 years. The research was carried out from 1 October to 25 November 2016. The research was approved by the Bioethics Commission of the Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin (Poland).

Results
A low level of acceptance of the disease during systemic treatment was obtained by 112 patients, average by 107, and 81 respondents believed that there were no problems with their acceptance of the disease.

Conclusions
1. Variables, i.e. age, gender, tobacco smoking, and type of treatment, have a significant impact on the acceptance of illness in the course of systemic treatment of cancer. 2. The professional activity of oncology patients has a positive impact on the acceptance of illness during systemic treatment.
