Understanding Your Fears: How To Be an Empowering Caregiver

Nov 03, 2022 7:00 PM (ET)

Supporting someone going through cancer requires holding space for them without projecting our fears. However, even with the best intentions, we will sometimes say the wrong thing. In this session, we will discuss the difference between empathy and sympathy. We will also talk about healthy communication and how to hold space for our fears. We’re in this together and will leave this session feeling more comfortable supporting our loved ones and empowered in our communication.
