If you look after someone with cancer, you may not think of yourself as a carer. You may say ‘I'm just being their husband, partner, daughter or friend’. Yet the support you provide is vital. Whether it's helping with shopping, taking them to the hospital or just being there when they need to talk.
We know that without the right support, providing this care can have a big impact on you – physically, emotionally and financially. But you don’t have to go through it alone.
