Living with Cancer, a CareGivers Journey

My writing journey is well underway! The goal of this project is to provide insights and resources that will lead the reader to be a more educated cancer patient and a more effective cancer caregiver.

It has been a 28 year journey that has taken us to 5 countries and 3 U.S. states. Over the years, my husband and I have had to find oncologists wherever we lived and were fortunate that they were willing to communicate and collaborate with top myeloma specialists at the Mayo and Dana Farber Cancer Institute. And, now many years later, they have generously offered to contribute their own knowledge and experience to my book, ‘Living with Cancer, a CareGivers Journey ®.

It is not just the cancer patient who is affected by a cancer diagnosis; it affects the entire family, their circle of friends, those in the patient’s workplace, and beyond. The book will include information and resources for the cancer caregiver and patient families, who are such an important part of the cancer team and who are searching for help and hope! This book will be an invaluable tool for those who have cancer, work with cancer patients, research cancer, educate about cancer and work to bring about improvements in a cancer patient’s quality of life.

I look forward to sharing this resource with you.

Fondly,
Barbara Kavanagh
