This week we shine the spotlight on blog posts from caregivers and supporters of loved ones with cancer. Cancer not only affects those that are diagnosed, but also their circle of friends and family. As outlined below, simple tasks such as shopping for food can take on a new sense of urgency and importance, and the frustration of wanting to do more to help than you can doesn’t help anyone.
For more great blogs from the cancer community, check out our list of over 125 cancer blogs. The list grows weekly, if you have a personal blog about your journey navigating cancer please add it to the list.
