Objectives
- Explore the unique needs of loved ones and caregivers of people with cancer

- Even if the cancer is “cured” or goes into remission there may be lasting disabilities and/or losses
- Loss of security (health anxiety in the patient and SOs)
- Loss of function or changes in appearance
- Cognitive impairment (“chemo-brain”) impacts attention, working memory, executive function, and processing speed
