Cancer Awareness Month…

In Honor of Those We Love♥️

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Rarely does anyone speak from the caregivers point of view.

  1. Speaking from experience, you could never imagine the emotional toll.
  2. How it’s handled varies from patient- to patient.
  3. Some check in mentally, some check out and become unavailable (because the news is unbearable).
  4. Practice daily routines the preserve life- yours and theirs. Examples: Lifestyle, support in every area.
  5. Caregivers must put their own “well-being” at the forefront. In most cases all attention is given to the patient- leaving a lack of care and decline of health for the caregiver.


Share LOVE, SUPPORT and PRESERVE yourself.
