October marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are ready for it. In honor of the 285,000 Americans who are diagnosed with breast cancer every year and the more than 3.8 million breast cancer survivors living in the US today, we are getting a head start on joining the movement in three important ways.
We frequently think about supporting people who are ill, in the thick of a life event, or on the road to recovery. But what about their caregivers? A new book offers insight into the grueling role of unpaid family caregivers and what friends, families and even strangers can do to help.
In our conversation with Alison Swisher, LMFT, we discuss strategies for connecting with our loved ones despite physical separation.
