Cancer affects caretakers as well as the patient. My wife, Ellen Bachmeyer, is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) as well as a professional coach. In addition to being a caretaker herself she has extensive professional experience guiding and supporting caregivers. What affects men with cancer simultaneously affects their partners, whether cancer is talked about or not. Cancer affects your whole family.
When one person gets cancer, the whole family gets cancer.”
