Caregivers and Co-Survivors

As a caregiver or co-survivor, you have a journey of your own that may involve changes in your relationships and new insights into who you are. In many ways, your journey is similar to that of the person going through cancer. The acceptance of this disease as part of your life will require its own focused attention.
