Helping Around the House: A Comic by a Cancer Caregiver

When dealing with blood cancer, keeping up with things around the house often falls to the bottom of a very long to-do list. In our 2nd Annual Blood Cancer In America Survey, 72% of caregivers said that they help their loved one with household duties. From getting groceries to unloading the dishwasher and starting the laundry, loved ones, caregivers, and care-partners play an important role in making life feel more normal.

This comic was created by illustrator Lucius Wisniewski. He is a caregiver for his wife and a contributor for our sister site,

    Lol! As a caregiver and a person who is living with cancer I get this comic from both sides. My poor husband has to deal with me and had to deal with both me and our daughter while she was going through treatments. I know it’s not easy for him. I say this while on our way to Sloan for an appointment. It’s a beautiful day and he would have been home enjoying it, but insists on accompanying me to the city. Caring for a child is very different than caring for a spouse so thank you to all of you caregivers out there!
