Words of Wisdom on Caregiving from the Conner Creek Cancer Action Council

In 2016, the Detroit Conner Creek Cancer Action Council (CAC) was established on the Northeast side of Detroit. This group was made up of cancer survivors, caregivers and advocates from the Detroit Conner Creek community. After meeting for 18 months and learning about cancer and its impact on the community, early on the Conner Creek CAC indicated that there should be a resource for cancer caregivers, to provide information from a community perspective.

Through this document, the Conner Creek CAC hopes to help cancer caregivers to think about how important their role is in the life and well-being of their cancer survivor. This document is designed to assist with the complexities of the healthcare system and accompany you on your caregiving journey.
