Being a caregiver is both a rewarding and a challenging experience. Caregivers willingly and selflessly devote their time to care for their loved ones battling lung cancer. However, it's all too easy to neglect themselves at the same time.

There are resources available to help caregivers take care of their loved ones as well as themselves. Here you will find ways to ask for help from family and friends, get support from other caregivers, and get help and advice with end-of-life issues.

Be gentle with yourself. These are uncharted waters that many of us are going through. Reach out and get involved with support groups or connect with someone who either has been a caregiver or is currently a caregiver. I find that some people just don’t understand what it’s like loving someone with cancer.
