A cancer diagnosis does not just affect the patient. Spouses, children, parents, siblings, friends, and other loved ones may all be called upon to help.
A cancer caregiver is someone who helps a person with cancer in an unpaid role.
Caregiver roles are complex and constantly changing. Being a caregiver is also a role for which many people feel unprepared. Educating yourself about cancer caregiving can help you provide the best support for your loved one as he or she navigates life with cancer.
