Welcome to this series of blogs - This is for you... the carer, the silent hero, the rock.

You are the glue that holds life together when shit hits the fan.

Firstly, if you are reading this because you have found yourself caring or supporting a loved one with cancer, I am sorry you are going through this. You are not alone; I am placing a firm hand on your shoulder & you will get through this.

Secondly, if you are reading this because you have a friend with cancer or a friend caring for someone with cancer. Give yourself a bloody big pat on the back for reading this. You are a true friend; I hope I can help you understand what you can do to help your friend or loved one while looking after yourself.
