How Have You Supported a Loved One During Cancer

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

When my husband was diagnosed with cancer last year, I wanted to give him the support he needed throughout treatment. I was there for every appointment, surgery, and therapy treatment. I ensured his diet contained foods that would promote healing and were healthy. I changed dressings after surgery and helped him dress when he was too weak. As I write this now, I see I did a lot to support my husband, but at the time, I felt like it wasn't enough. When someone you love has cancer, you do everything it takes to make them a little more comfortable and to increase their quality of life.
