Receiving a cancer diagnosis is often a devastating blow, not just to those going through it but to their families as well. It can be a frightening time, and even more so when you’re living far away from your loved one.
You will not be able to be there for every round of chemo, or every operation so it’s only natural to feel sad, helpless, worried and even guilty. But the miles apart should not prevent you from providing valuable support and assistance. It’s important to remember that even though you’re not available to give hands-on assistance on a regular basis, you can still help from far away.
These are just some of the ways in which you can support a loved one going through cancer treatment when you live overseas.
