At the American Cancer Society, they're on a mission to free the world from cancer. Until we do, they'll be funding and conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. All so patients can live longer — and better.
Not everyone has friends who understand or will even listen; that’s why The Caregiver Space is here. They provide a safe and open space—at no cost —where one can be real about what it’s like to care for someone dealing with a serious disability or illness. This is a place to ask questions, share experiences, get real answers, or just get things off ones chest.
Caregiver Action Network (CAN) is the nation’s leading family caregiver organization working to improve the quality of life for the more than 90 million Americans who care for loved ones with chronic conditions, disabilities, disease, or the frailties of old age. CAN serves a broad spectrum of family caregivers ranging from the parents of children with special needs, to the families and friends of wounded soldiers; from a young couple dealing with a diagnosis of MS, to adult children caring for parents with Alzheimer’s disease. CAN (the National Family Caregivers Association) is a non-profit organization providing education, peer support, and resources to family caregivers across the country free of charge.
