Contributor: Sheelagh Cabalda My Story – I had just started a new position with Gilda’s Club Worldwide, whose mission was to provide socio-emotional support to families living with cancer. That included not just the individual whose body the cancer invaded, but also all those around them affected by their cancer.
Caregiver Stories: Diverse Voices
As part of the Modern Aging community, we want to hear from diverse voices that embody what it means to be a caregiver. Each contributor shares their story, what they learned from being a caregiver; what they wished they knew beforehand; what they worry about most; and how they self-care. These are common issues that bind us but how we handle these challenges are often very different depending on our families, cultures, situations, locations. We hope that by sharing their stories, you will find comfort and insight in your caregiving experience as well as possibly learn something new!
