How can a survivor show appreciation?


Question from jnurse7777: What can a breast cancer survivor do for her partner to show appreciation for all the support during multiple surgeries and chemos?
Answers - Marc Silver That's very sweet! Let me buy something that I've always wanted! You know, I didn't want anything from my wife, I was so happy she was back to herself after the months of treatment ended. And sometimes she cuts me a little slack for my bad habits, and I really appreciate that. But I kind of secretly wish she'd get me a bunch of flowers once in a while.
Rosalind Kleban, L.C.S.W. So, I guess the answer is, that you probably know special things that your husband would appreciate. And that now's the time to do it.

On Wednesday, February 21, 2007, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Partners, Loved Ones, Caregivers: Taking Care of  You. Author Marc Silver and moderator Rosalind Kleban, L.C.S.W. answered your questions about how you can take care of your loved one and yourself during and after breast cancer treatment.
