Let’s Get REAL About Caregiving!

Caregivers are vital to the success of a bone marrow/stem cell transplant for many reasons. The unique needs of transplant patients necessitates the need for loving and dedicated individuals who can step up and stay strong for the long haul.

This one is for you and your loved ones!

Jennifer Gillette, our licensed staff social worker will facilitate this important topic and help us better understand the complex relationship caregivers have with their loved ones, the recipients.

Jim Bulger, a spouse and caregiver to his wife Nancy (both seen above) will share their journey and what they have learned along the way. There will be time for questions as well.

Wednesday, Feb. 17
Noon EST (one hour)
