Overview

How do you help someone who receives a devastating diagnosis? Is there anything you can do to make a real difference?

Cancer survivor June Hunt shares proven, practical ways to care for loved ones with a critical illness—ways that made all the difference in her own battle with cancer.

This book is a carefully crafted collection of ideas to help caregivers minister to loved ones who are suffering from cancer or chronic illness. Each short, single-topic chapter is full of specific things to do and not to do—to say and not to say—to be of maximum help at each bend in the road.

Along with fifty practical ways to help, June includes sections such as:

  • Tips for Temporary Trials (how to cope with chemotherapy)
  • Don’t Forget about the Children (when a parent has cancer)
  • For Those Who Need Spiritual Healing (putting your faith into action)
  • Discover the Important Don’ts (what you really need to know)

Learn how to lighten the load of those weighed down with cancer and to walk beside them on this difficult journey.

What People Are Saying

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
