Cancer Caregivers 2019 Article Banner

Caring for a loved one who has cancer in no small feat. On average, cancer caregivers spend more than 30 hours every week caregiving (Cancer Caregiving in the U.S.). Spending that much time meeting the needs of another person may not leave a lot of time to care for yourself, but it is important that you do so.

Fifty percent of cancer caregivers experience significant emotional stress (Cancer Caregiving in the U.S.). In order to best care for your loved one, you must first care for yourself.
