In Your Words

“The young adult caregiver support group at CancerCare really gave me an outlet, one hour a week, to talk to people my age who were going through the same thing that I was going through. It freed up so much space in the rest of my life to interact with my friends and family the way I wanted to.”

—Kathryn, caring for her husband with melanoma
