Formas de hacer frente a las consecuencias del cuidado de otras personas En esta sección, analizamos posibles medidas que podemos tomar para apoyarnos en las luchas que supone ser cuidador. Tomarse un descanso/ Encontrar el "tiempo para mí" Cuidar de alguien parece una ocupación a tiempo completo, pero no tiene por qué serlo. Cuidar de uno mismo nos prepara para desempeñar mejor nuestro papel. La mayoría de los cuidadores dudan a la hora de tomarse un descanso de sus responsabilidades, ya que se...


El apoyo y el cuidador Cuidando a un cuidador Cuando llegan los informes de las pruebas y la creciente expectación confirma los peores temores con un diagnóstico de cáncer, sin duda a quien más afecta es al individuo.

Thank you SO much for this site! I found great info on this site when I was originally diagnosed with NSCLC in 2014. After my lobectomy in Feb. 2015, staged 1B, I assumed I would be cancer-free forever. Unfortunately, this week a CT revealed that the cancer has returned in both lungs and I am eager to gather as much information as I can to give myself the best outcome possible. Thank you so much for the reply and words of encouragement, Janine! In addition to the moral support, this site has already provided me with invaluable answers to some questions I've had regarding first line treatments (e.g., Afatinib v. Tarceva, Immunotherapy v. oral targeted therapy for EGFR mutations). Thank you again!


I thank GRACE and its fine staff, professionals, volunteers, and other correspondents for all the support and helpful information I have received, even though it's been a while since I've been online (except to eavesdrop). I especially thank Dr. West, for impressing and inspiring my oncologist (and me as well). I also appreciate the wonderful physicians and other healthcare staff who have taken such good care of me over these past ten years. And I am so very fortunate for my wonderful husband and step-children, who have been enormously supportive and helpful along this path.

This journey has been an incredible emotional roller coaster ride, but you have been through it with me from the beginning. Thank you for your support, your information, and for all you do to make this journey a little bit more tolerable. I am so very, very, grateful. May the year ahead be filled with blessings of love and peace and health for all of you who work so hard to help others!


After a year or so of internet searching I found this site. Nothing compares. On behalf of everyone that is touched by cancer, thank you for your extraordinary efforts.


[This] is the most accessible, easily understood, and useful forum dialog available on the net for us lung cancer survivors.


We are so grateful for your always balanced perspective between optimism and reality.


I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do with this website. You are amazing. So many doctors would not take the time to give such long and thoughtful and helpful comments. Bless you and you bring tears to my eyes for your kindness and dedication. Thank you so much!


Grace is unique. It's given us information seekers a place to gather and plan the overthrow of the local cancer centers. I kid but I see the faces of doctors when I say I've been reading online but I've been doing it for 20 years and I don't think it's a fad. Thank you Dr. West for accepting that and helping us out. 


CancerGRACE is an amazing organization to collaborate with to help empower individuals impacted by cancer. They provide great resources to effectively educate the community and are always very responsive to ensuring the most accurate information is available. It is great to partner with an organization that is aligned with Patient Empowerment Network’s mission!
