When a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, the emotional responses to the diagnosis may not be predictable and are as wide and varied as the men involved. Family and friends will also feel the impact of the diagnosis. The critical challenge faced by a caregiver is finding support and taking care of oneself to ultimately maintain personal health and energy levels. This resource is designed to help the caregiver better understand how they can support their family member or friend as they face prostate cancer. Also, how the caregiver can care for him/herself, and what emotional and practical suggestions caregivers can follow to help themselves and their loved ones cope with this diagnosis.
