Question from Mauryne: I think my husband is in a deep depression because this [breast cancer] is one thing he can't "fix".
Answers - Marc Silver Many men want to fix the cancer. And they sure can't. But what men have to realize is that they can provide the love and support that no one else can for their wife. So you need to tell him not to worry about fixing it, but really be there for you at doctor's appointments and at home.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Family and Loved Ones featured Rosalind Kleban, L.C.S.W., author Marc Silver, and moderator Marisa Weiss, M.D. answering your questions about the issues surrounding family members and caregivers living with and caring for women affected by breast cancer.
