Cancer treatment challenges are often felt intensely by unseen caregivers, who negotiate medical intricacies in supportive silence, grappling with their own, often ignored distress. Majority of cancer patients get treatment in community clinics where caregiver's distress is unrecognized, undiagnosed and untreated.
