Effects of Cancer on Family
Being a cancer patient is tough as well as being a family member or caregiver of that patient. Adrian Cristian, Physiatrist at Miami Cancer Institute, says it is convenient to make that family member be knowledgeable about the cancer itself.
Teaching practical skills, how to take care of the person with the diagnosis and getting them through the cancer treatments could also be a physyatrist's work.
"That resiliency in the individual but the support of the family is a true strength to that person's recovery from cancer," he highlights.
