Who looks after the carers?

Menzies School of Health Research is doing a study on carers of Indigenous people with cancer.  Most of the carers are family members, and are so important to the well being and recovery of people with cancer, but who takes care of the carers?

Who is there to help them and what do they need to make it easier on them emotionally? This study is probably the first one that has looked at the carers and how they are doing.

I advise all those who have or had cancer and their carers to contact Menzies and join in this study.
