“If only someone had told me what to expect…”
We all know someone who has been living with cancer. Some of us are survivors. Some of us are caregivers. We may have lost loved ones to cancer. We have endured suffering, and seen others in pain. A few of us have been fortunate enough to provide relief to others or helped a loved one find comfort and dignity through palliative care.
Sooner or later, each one of us may have to confront cancer, in one way or another. We may be called upon to don the role of a caregiver and take difficult decisions.
A person living with cancer – be it a patient, the parent of a child with cancer, a caregiver or a survivor – shoulders various costs, challenges and losses arising from the illness. There are long term effects that we may not be aware of.
How do we navigate the tremendously challenging landscape of cancer?
What can it be like? What should we be prepared for? How can palliative care help?
