We’re In This Together – A Caregiver’s Story
From Rob Harris, author of We Are In This Together — A Caregiver’s Story: “Like most people, I very unexpectedly became an at-home caregiver when my wife was first diagnosed with cancer. Since then, I have been an at-home caregiver, on and off, from 1990 until present day, for my wife and best friend, Cindy, who is a two-time cancer survivor. Presently, she continues to experience challenges with a leg amputation that has forced her to remain wheelchair-enabled since January, 2010.
As such, I continue to provide caregiver help, over two-decades later. During her most recent battle with a very deadly form of cancer, which began in 2006, I was her exclusive family caregiver. More specifically, I was her in-home caregiver and also watched over her each and every day she spent in the hospital. My mission was to provide exceptional caregiver help and support day and night, seven days a week. From this, I gained invaluable knowledge about how caregivers can provide exceptional caregiver support to their loved ones.”
