...to help experience with disease
Finding out a loved one has cancer can be one of the most difficult things a person will ever have to experience, but caregivers who offer friendship, love and support to the family member or friend diagnosed with the disease do not have to go through the experience alone. The American Cancer Society hosts a series of telephone workshops for family, caregivers and friends to learn about information and support related to caring for a loved one with cancer.
“Caring for someone with cancer can be hard. Finding help shouldn’t be,” said Patricia P. Hoge, RN, PhD, executive vice president of mission delivery and medical affairs for the American Cancer Society’s South Atlantic Division. “Working together with caregivers can help loved ones get well and provide the support family and friends need through every step of their cancer experience.”
