A cancer caregiver, whether they are family or a friend, selflessly offers an unparalleled and irreplaceable gift. Caregivers are the most important members of a cancer patient's team on a day-to-day basis. They're the unsung heroes who are always willing to put their loved one's needs before their own.
Caregivers transport their loved one to all their cancer treatment appointments, as well as consults with the cancer specialists on a regular basis to ensure that the patient receives the best treatment and at-home care.
They can also be ensuring at-home care is being attended to, and can be everything from making meals to cleaning and laundry – taking over for the things the cancer patient may have normally done for the family.
