From Caregiver to Patient

Beth K. was just weeks away from her dream — graduating as a Registered Nurse and caring for oncology patients in hospice. But a CT scan and biopsy revealed that she had advanced pancreatic cancer.

An Emotional Lifeline

Going from caregiver to cancer patient was life-changing, but Beth took a positive approach to her physical, spiritual, mental and emotional healing.

“CaringBridge is an emotional lifeline that provides a two-way flow of love and connects me to a heartfelt community of personal cheerleaders,” Beth wrote in a blog.

Other benefits: receiving caregiver support and encouragement from family and friends, posting photos and videos, and using her CaringBridge Journal as a form of therapy.

“My journaling gives me a safe haven to share my innermost thoughts,” she writes, “and awesome people return an outpouring of love and encouragement back through my Guestbook.”
