If you are walking with a friend or family member on their cancer journey, you are a caregiver and an essential part of the cancer care team.
In order to support your loved one, you also need to care for yourself—emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Taking the time to address your own needs will allow you to be present when your loved one needs you most. The support system your loved one is relying on can help you, too—ask for help and keep communicating. You are not alone.
