Guest: Cecelia Salamone, dedicated to the millions of caregivers around the world. Cancer and caregiving are now closely linked to patient survival. This interview focuses on that relationship, and on the difficulties of more than one cancer diagnosis within a family. Cecelia's father died from Multiple Myeloma. This year, her husband had lung cancer surgery. He survived, but it's hard for Cecelia to see a difference in the before and after cancer person. Even before her father and husband, her grandmother died from cancer. Her aunt is a 3X survivor, one of her cousins had stomach cancer and another had breast cancer. Many families face this reality, which leads to PTSD in those that are involved in the daily care and in the cancer family.
