Thanks for Sharing Your #CaregiverCandids!
In honor of National Family Caregivers Month, CancerCare encouraged anyone affected by cancer to recognize caregivers by sharing a photo that represents this important role. We received a collection of inspiring and creative photos from across the nation.
Congratulations to grand prize winner, Melissa!
"My amazing husband, Bud, with me on 11/11/14 as I prepare for my 11th surgery. I had a total hysterectomy and oophorectomy due to being a BRCA2 mutation carrier. This was an emotionally difficult surgery. He brightens my world when I’m lost in the dark."
Congratulations to our second place winner, Stephanie!
"I am the caregiver for my husband Andy who just recently had his 3rd surgery since being diagnosed with GBM IV. This continues to be a stressful ongoing struggle, but I am thankful to be here helping encourage him and our children to never give up hope."
CancerCare provides free, professional support services for caregivers and loved ones, as well as caregiving information and additional resources.
