Cancer Care

A cancer diagnosis impacts a person in many ways -- emotionally, physically and financially. It also impacts a person's family, friends and loved ones. At CancerCare, we are dedicated to providing help and hope for anyone affected by cancer. We are a national organization offering telephone, online and face-to-face counseling, support groups, education, publications and financial and co-payment assistance. Our professional oncology social workers provide personalized care, and all of our services are free of charge.

One of the many programs that we offer is designed specifically for caregivers. If you are helping to care for a loved one with cancer, you may not think of yourself as a caregiver. You may see what you're doing as something natural: taking care of someone you love. Still, for many people, caregiving isn't easy.

Watch our video below about the unique and specialized services that CancerCare provides to caregivers of people affected by cancer.


Experiencing the loss of a loved one to cancer changes your world forever. It can be challenging to manage the difficult emotions that can come up as you grieve. But you are not alone.
