Overview

Virtually all of us have a family member or friend who has been diagnosed with cancer. But do we really know how to help? Reflecting on her own journey with cancer, June Hunt offers “practical, yet overlooked ideas” to help caregivers walk through the journey with those they love. Caring for a Loved One with Cancer begins with the first doctor’s visit and moves through nearly fifty short, single-topic chapters with practical application. These include offering to communicate progress and needs, keeping a record of remembrances, making a chart for medication, fixing food that helps with healing, and others. 

Additional chapters cover tips for helping children through confusion, dealing with issues related to cancer treatment, discovering important “don’ts,” and what cancer cannot do. Specifically written for those caring for loved ones battling cancer, this book can also be used by those coming alongside anyone suffering from a debilitating illness.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

“If you’ve just learned that someone you love has cancer, you’re holding the perfect ‘What can I do’ book. Caring for a Loved One with Cancer is filled with countless, practical pointers that could only be compiled by someone who has been there. A must have for caregivers and patients alike.”
Otis W. Brawley, MD, Chief Medical Officer, National Home Office, American Cancer Society

“June triumphs over her trials by sharing with caregivers scores of time-tested tips and to-dos that made a definitive difference in her successful struggle. This book will truly help you help others.”
Joel T. Allison, President and CEO, Baylor Health Care System

“Could only have been written by one who has personally experienced this ‘unfriendly foe.’ As a breast cancer survivor/conqueror…I found the advice on how to minister to the children of cancer patients to be especially caring and valuable.”
Merry Nell Drummond, cofounder, Austin, Texas chapter of Bosom Buddies

“Focused on the medical aspects of cancer care, I often forget the integral role friends and family play in patient recovery. June reinforces invaluable, practical actions we should never forget, and shows how to share God’s love with cancer patients.”
Roberto Rodriguez Ruesga, MD, FACS, FASCRS, Colorectal Surgeon

“As a cancer survivor and program manager at a cancer center, I come in contact with a lot of material related to the cancer experience. . . . It is so refreshing to find such valuable information written with the loved ones of cancer patients in mind. I would strongly recommend this book, not only for anyone who knows someone diagnosed with cancer, but also for cancer treatment centers.”
Janet Kirklen, RN, Program Manager, Nurse Educator, Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center

“There is an art to walking with others wounded by illness. June’s practical book equips all willing souls to turn our efforts into a Masterpiece. Read…walk…and be blessed.”
Adam L. Myers, MD, CHCQM, CPHRM, Senior Vice President, Chief Medical Officer, Methodist Health System

“Having worked with many cancer patients over the past 50 years, I know the importance of supportive family and friends. Such support can result in prolongation of life and certainly its quality. June does a wonderful job answering the questions asked by family members. This book is a classic.”
Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, Founder, Chairman, Cooper Aerobics Center
