For so many of us, it’s difficult to reach out and receive help.

One of the best ways to show up for someone battling cancer is to offer practical and specific assistance, like picking up food while you’re out or inviting their child over for a playdate so they have an afternoon to rest.

It’s also important to match their energy and let them express their emotions. It’s exhausting to always put on a brave face, especially when you’re in a lot of pain. 

Cynthia highlights the physical and emotional burden that a lot of caregivers experience, which often goes unnoticed. Checking in with them and doing something to lighten their load can go a long way.

Listen in to learn more about how to navigate the emotional rollercoaster of a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and remission.
