Greatest Toll is on Cancer Caregivers

An important article by Claire Hughes in today's Albany Times Union. Hughes reports on the recently released study, "Cancer Caregiving in the U.S."--a report from the National Alliance for Caregiving, a Maryland-based nonprofit.

The study, and Hughes article which shares personal stories, details the kinds of hands-on care and specific stressors that caregivers of a loved-one with cancer face.

I know that you already know this. You have had this experience or you are living it. But, I think, it does help to know that what you are experiencing is real, and documented, and that the stress and struggle of cancer care are not a failing, weakness, or personal.

This is an article to share with loved ones, friends, support groups and counselors--and oncologists.
