Plight of cancer carers highlighted
A new study by the Cancer Council has found ninety percent of people caring for cancer-sufferers are experiencing dangerous levels of distress, higher than those experienced by patients.
Listeners to Mornings with Gareth Parker shared their experiences as both cancer-sufferers and cancer carers.
Melanie Marsh from Cancer Council WA, then joined Mornings to discuss how people can get help when needed.
Carers looking for support can contact Cancer Council WA on 13 11 20.
