“Being a caregiver for a cancer patient can be extremely daunting and it’s something that most of us are not trained to do. Caregivers need all the help they can get. But you somehow find the knowledge, the support and the strength to run with it as best you can. As former caregivers to my son who had a brain tumour, our family was grateful for the wonderful support we had from patient organisations; our knowledge came from the clinical community who were very empathetic and kind to us; and our strength came from our son’s determination and courage.”
