What about a Caregiver’s role in Treating Cancer?

Being treated for cancer can serve as one of the most trying times in a person’s life. However, having the right support can make the experience easier to bear.

Since 1981, Cancer Hope Network has been matching cancer patients with volunteers who have been through similar treatment experiences. Cancer Hope Network understands that speaking with someone who has gone through a similar experience can provide support that cancer patients can’t get anywhere else.

While cancer treatment is undeniably difficult for a patient, family members caring for patients suffer hardships as well. Cancer Hope Network recognizes the challenges that caregivers face, and provides support specifically for them. Caregivers can be matched with other caregivers, people whose loved ones have gone through cancer treatment, with whom they can discuss issues and ask questions that concern living with a loved one undergoing cancer treatment.

If you or someone you know needs support while caring for a loved one with cancer, request a phone call with a volunteer.

When dealing with cancer, as a patient or a caregiver, just a little bit of support can make all the difference.

Technology is supposed to make getting in touch with loved ones easier, right?
