Your child, your spouse, your parent or your sibling has been the victim of medical malpractice. Failure to diagnose cancer has allowed your loved one’s disease to progress and is causing your loved one significant pain and suffering. You too are suffering as you watch what the cancer malpractice is doing to your family.

While you might feel conflicted about taking time to care for yourself when you are not the one with the disease, it is important to remember that you need to take care of yourself so that you can take care of others.

How to Take Care of Yourself After a Family Member’s Cancer Misdiagnosis
Generally, you need to do what gives you the most support. For example, you might:
  • Lean on your friends. Most people genuinely want to help you through this difficult time. Let them do some of your errands, make you dinner or play with your kids so that you have a few minutes to yourself.
  • Continue living.  Make time to do the things that you enjoy so that you feel refreshed and upbeat when caring for your loved one.
  • Seek individual counseling. A therapist is someone who will listen to you and help you handle your feelings.
  • Look for support groups. It can be comforting to be with others in similar situations.
