The Cancer Caregiver Guide
The support every caregiver needs
Caregiving is a labor of love.
If you are one of the 20-plus percent of Americans providing unpaid caregiving to another adult, then you have likely experienced uncertainty, frustration, and maybe even exhaustion. But hopefully, you have experienced moments of connection and compassion as well.
While many aspects of a patient’s diagnosis are out of your control, there are things you can do to improve the quality of life for both you and your loved one. The Cancer Caregiver Guide is here to help you every step of the way as you provide care to someone facing cancer.
NBCF’s free Cancer Caregiver Guide includes:
- The information you need to get organized as a caregiver
- The key roles—and challenges—of caregiving
- Tips on self-care
- Questions to ask the patient’s healthcare team
- Advice from real caregivers
- And more!

“I appreciate the Cancer Caregiver Guide as a supportive tool for those who are serving as caregivers during the challenges of cancer… Not all cancers are terminal and people need to feel supported as they assist in the caregiver role. Families need support. Your guide will help, and hopefully avoid the ‘burnout’ that too often occurs. Thank you so much.” – Jane
