Betty Garrett speaks with Joyce and Mike about her non-profit organization, Caregivers4Cancer.
Unless you have a medical degree or background, chances are you don’t know how to care for a cancer patient. As the wife of a cancer patient, Betty Garrett was thrust into this role and didn’t have a clue what to do, but she learned quickly -- although not always easily. As Betty says, "This is the scariest roller coaster ride of your life!"
If you are:
dealing with a loved one or friend who has cancer
trying to get through the maze of healthcare
need a resource to help you stay the course
feel overwhelmed but don’t want your loved one to know
Caregivers4Cancer was created to help you.
Caregivers4Cancer was created because she has been through all of these things and wants to help you through your own journey.
Caregivers4Cancer exists to educate and assure caregivers and oncology teams there are ways to ease the journey’s relentless demands. You can emerge on the other end with less stress, more energy and a feeling of accomplishment that you did all you could for your loved one.

Caregivers need to take care of themselves before they become ill from the stress. Adult children, spouses, friends, etc. May perform duties on a full or part time basis. Bathing, dressing, transportation, cleaning, meal preparation is only part of the duties to be executed. These duties along with a full time may cause fatigue, anxiety and lots of tears. Ones body and emotions can only tolerate so much pressure. Yes, you love your parents dearly and would do anything to keep them safe and comfortable. However, if you become ill, who will take care of your duties?
Relaxation and fun are a must for every caregiver. This presentation by Karen Owen-Lee, "The Senior Expert" will encourage you to try some new activities.
