It’s no secret that being a cancer caregiver is difficult work. That’s why when Susan helped care for her mother, father, stepmother, and stepfather during a consecutive eight-year period, she struggled. She struggled with the devastation of the diagnosis, the prognosis, and the pain of seeing her loved ones suffer. She suffered and grieved over having to say goodbye to them one by one. She was at a loss of what to do to help and comfort her loved ones when it mattered most.


Altogether, Susan helped care for seven family members with cancer. Sometimes two of them were battling the disease at the same time. Susan struggled with caregiver burnout, exhaustion, stress, and her own physical problems brought on by trying to do too much. Despite her struggles, she felt compelled to be there for her loved ones with cancer, continue working at her job, and attempt to maintain life as usual for her husband and children.

Every time she went through the caregiver experience, Susan learned more about what to expect and how to cope. Creating joy-filled moments and learning to appreciate the simple things in life helped Susan connect in a deeper way with her loved ones. Suddenly, Susan looked at life differently—through the eyes of her loved ones with cancer. What she saw touched her soul. Susan discovered the importance of showing love to the loved one with cancer and found there were many more ways to do so than she ever thought possible.
