From Cancer Caregiver to Cancer 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 a cancer caregiver to a 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 cancer caregiver support and encouragement from family and friends, posting photos and videos, and using her CaringBridge Journal as a form of cancer treatment therapy.

Cancer Blog: The Power of Story

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