Caring for Caregivers

Cancer Care Services, through the Journey of Hope Program, focuses on supporting cancer patients, caring for caregivers and empowering survivors by guiding and teaching our clients to COPE, THRIVE and CONNECT through the journey with cancer.

Research has found high rates of anxiety and depression among caregivers, as well as increased risk for health problems. By partnering with Cancer Care Services, caregivers will be empowered to fulfill their own personal needs and the needs of those they care for.
