Hello Everyone,

Hope you're having a good day and prayers and best wishes for cancer fighters! I am a newbie to "caregivers" thing and have recently lost my dear Aunt who was diagnosed with cancer. I spend my few months in taking care of her that's how I got to know about cancer diagnosis treatments and becoming caregivers etc. Now.. She isn't anymore so thought of moving to support groups and online communities to learn more about caregivers and helping others.
Indeed she was like a role model to me and watching him fighting with cancer was the hardest thing.
Well, it's life what I can say; The Show Must Goes On...

adrienne - I'm sorry for your loss and I admire your thoughts about future caregiving.

Most of us here are either consumed with getting information to get through cancer & it's treatments. It's a very personal thing that doesn't translate well to non-cancer people. Or we've formed friendships and don't want to dwell on or talk much about cancer. If I were you, I'd call your local hospital to see how you might volunteer. Or see about the volunteer opportunities at Hospice.
