February 2015 Ask the Expert: Being Your Own Caregiver

Not everyone has a big support system to lean on after a breast cancer diagnosis. Whether you are living alone, living far from friends and family, or simply keep only a small circle of close friends, you may find that you have to care for yourself more often than others. Still, there may be moments when having a stronger support system could be useful.

This February, Living Beyond Breast Cancer expert Christina Bach, MBE, MSW, LCSW, OSW-C answered your questions about how to juggle everyday life with cancer treatment when you are your own caregiver; what kinds of professionals your treatment center may have to help you; and where to find the support you want.
