Being diagnosed with renal cancer can be life changing, and with such a life changing event comes mental, physical, and emotional stresses and changes.
When diagnosed with a chronic condition, often times a caregiver or a loved one is who is often leaned upon for support.
What are some things you wish your caregiver or loved one could know?

I am glad you created this discussion. My caregiver is my wife and I feel like ever since we got married I have been in chronic pain and now this diagnosis... I do not know how she does it as I am in pain 24/7 and at times it can consume my mind. I am also in a state of 24/7 worry, so she could tell me stories or we could watch a movie and my mind sometimes just will not focus because it is consumed by my pain and worries.
I know she knows how much pain I am in and concern - but I wish she knew truly how hard I try and be strong for her and how much I love and cherish her.

@rcc0088 thank you for sharing. I am sure your wife appreciates how much you try to be strong for her and love her.
