    When Lung Cancer Turns Your World Upside Down…

    Did you guys see this? What do you think? How does it compare to your experience? It made me kind of sad that only 63% of respondents said they have caregivers actively engaged in their care. Did you have support when you were in treatment? Did you think it was important?

    I was a caregiver for my mother right after her surgery and while she was in chemo. I hope that it made a difference for her, but I know that it did for me. I felt so blessed to be able to offer tangible support to show her how much I love her. Being a caregiver is hard, but it is also a gift, I think. I guess being cared for is a gift, but it is probably also hard sometimes. What do you think?
