Caring for someone diagnosed with breast cancer.
A breast cancer diagnosis has far-reaching effects, extending to spouses, partners, family members, friends, or any combination of these. If you are one of these people, you may now find yourself in a new role: that of caregiver. As a caregiver, you play important part in the life of a person with breast cancer — from initial diagnosis throughout the journey. And, you know that caregivers provide critical assistance, but not as part of a paid position.
Here, you’ll find information and resources to support you and the person in your life who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. You will also find practical tips for communicating with your loved one, ways to care for yourself at the same time, and inspiring stories from others in a similar role.
Patience and resilience are not an easy task. Showing up and being there for each and every appointment. Support and love through the darkest of days. I want to thank every caretaker for their personal commitments and investment in a better quality of life.
