Caregivers play a very important role in the life of a person with breast cancer — from initial diagnosis throughout the journey. If you’re a caregiver, you know that caregivers provide critical assistance, but not as part of a paid position.
Instead, caregivers are often spouses, partners, family members, friends, or any combination of these. Neighbors, coworkers, and members of spiritual communities may help, especially if unexpected needs arise. Caregiving involves time, many roles, and a variety of skills. Multiple people may need to be involved, helping the person with breast cancer, and each other, along the way.
If you’re a caregiver, this section provides information and resources to support you and the person in your life who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. We’ll share tips for your communicating with your loved one and ways you can care yourself at the same time.
