Caring for cancer sufferers

Cancer is an illness that affects all spheres of the cancer patient’s life, from their personal, social, and professional life to physical, mental, and spiritual issues. 

Cancer sufferers often need help and support to get through the various stages of the disease (when receiving good or bad news, at hospital appointments, when suffering pain and discomfort caused by the illness or treatments, etc.). Everyone has their own way of accepting and living with the disease after being diagnosed with cancer. Some people express their emotions openly while others tend to withdraw and hide their feelings. So it’s normal that the person caring for and assisting them may sometimes find it difficult to handle the various situations and emotions that arise. Caring for a family member or friend who has cancer is no easy task. Yet, providing services, listening to them, and offering some of your time can make a big difference. If you are currently caring for someone with cancer and are feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, a variety of resources are available to help.
