Caring for Someone with Breast Cancer

Caring for Someone with Breast Cancer
 

Family members and friends can play a vital role in helping patients with breast cancer cope with their diagnosis and treatment.

 The following are just some of the ways you can help:

·    Go with the patient to their doctor visits. Listen and write down any information the doctor provides. Ask questions. There is no such thing as a silly question when it comes to a loved one's health.

·    Help to keep track of any side effects the patient may be experiencing and report them to the patient's doctor.

·    Assist with any insurance issues that may come up.

·    Give practical support to the patient. Volunteer to run errands, do cooking, housekeeping, etc.

·    Prioritize enjoyable time together with the patient.

·    Communicate with the patient as openly as possible. Listen when the patient wants to talk about his or her cancer and/or treatment.

 

When caring for a loved one with breast cancer, it's important to take care of yourself as well. Remember to:                       

·      Enjoy healthy meals.

·      Stay physically active.

·      Take regular walks, practice yoga, etc.

·      Take a break from the disease each day by enjoying some of your favorite pastimes - watch a movie or read a book.

·      Reach out to your family and friends for support or seek out support services for partners, family and friends of women diagnosed with breast cancer.

 


 A woman lifted up by others is stronger than a woman standing alone! 

  Women of Hope support group meetings are held the second Tuesday night of each month at Frazer United Methodist Church, Room 8114. These classes are free to all breast cancer patients/survivors, caregivers, family members or friends. Our goal is to encourage those families coping with breast cancer and to make sure that all men AND women are educated about breast cancer and its effects.  Light refreshments are served.  We encourage you to bring a friend and join us!   HOPE is the assurance that one day we will be able to live cancr free! .   

   Treating cancer is more than just healing the physical symptoms with drugs and chemotherapy. Research shows that emotional support from families, friends and others who have experienced cancer firsthand is crucial to the well-being of someone living with the illness.  Don’t hesitate to rely on your family and friends for support!  When overcoming breast cancer a support group can help you meet others who are suffering from the same disease. There is no better way to alleviate your emotional and challenging needs!
