To Our Caregivers: THANK YOU!

Last updated: December 2021

Dear Caregiver, Care-Partner, Caring Family and Friends,

Thank you for all that you do. In the moments when I am not feeling well, you have been there for me. Life with cancer is an emotional rollercoaster, and I am thankful to have your support. You are a superhero!

Your many roles

Thank you for being my personal shopper when I need something picked up from the store. My driver when I need a ride to treatments or appointments. My chef who cooks tasty meals to fill me up (ordering takeout counts, too). My shoulder to cry on when I am feeling down. My shelter when life feels like a chaotic storm.

The little things

Thank you for the little things, like making me a cup of tea or writing me a note to let me know you are thinking of me. Your small actions do make a big difference!

Just being there

Thank you for just being there in the quiet moments when riding in the car. In the waiting room, or at home. When I am feeling anxious and worried, your presence means more to me than you know.

I cannot thank you enough

Thank you for listening when I just need someone to talk to. And for making me laugh when I am feeling down. I do not think I can thank you enough. THANK YOU!
