Tim Watkins talks about his experience as a partner and caregiver of a man with metastatic breast cancer. Tim and Michael became a couple after Michael had been diagnosed with breast cancer, but before he had been diagnosed with metastatic disease.

Listen to the podcast to hear Tim talk about:

  • what it's like to date someone with breast cancer

  • how Tim's role as caregiver changed when Michael was diagnosed with metastatic disease

  • the advice he would offer to people who are cancer caregivers

Sadly, Michael passed away from metastatic breast cancer in September 2021. We are forever grateful he was a part of the Breastcancer.org community.
