For caregivers

Caregivers, what do you find to be the most challenging part of caring for someone with cancer? How can we help support each other?

  1. Hello , This is such a great question. If I had t pick one thing, it would be financial. My father is almost 90 and on a fixed income, but he spends money like it's water. He brought a new car about 2 years ago, shops, and does whatever he wants. I understand living your best life, but I also help him and he still has a wife. I'm very supportive and never discuss money with him. I don't want him to worry about money in his "best" years. Diane, Team Member

    1. That's a tough situation Diane. I've heard of other cancer patients who throw caution to the wind to live their best life which included not worrying about the financial impact. I don't know what the answer is, and being his daughter makes this especially hard for you to approach. Maybe a professional could help you figure it out so you could help him?
