Helping your loved one fight cancer.
If you’re caring for a loved one with cancer, you may have a lot of questions and face some important decisions. Being a caregiver can often bring on additional stress as you adjust your work, relationship and financial situations to help your loved one during their ongoing treatment and recovery. Finding support and taking care of your own health during this time is critical to sustaining yourself as a caregiver.
Our surgeons will work with you, your family and your loved one’s primary care physician to ensure that they receive the best possible cancer care. In addition, our medical and radiation oncology nurses and staff are all available to provide additional care and recommendations. They will take the time to provide the answers and support you need so you have a thorough understanding of your loved one’s diagnosis and what to expect before, during and after their treatment.
We’ve gathered information on hospital accommodations, discharge planning, postoperative pain management and more on our Before Your Surgery and After Your Surgery pages to help you feel informed and prepared.
You can also find a list of cancer organizations that offer additional information and support on our Resources for Support page, or check out the American Cancer Society’s Caregiver Resources.
