Chaz Ebert with Inspiring Advice for Caregivers

Roger Ebert has been suffering from thyroid cancer requiring intensive treatment over a long period of time. In fact, he almost died from complications of his treatment. His wife Chaz gave an interview with PopEater that has wise and inspirational advice for all caregivers of cancer patients.

It starts with a positive attitude.  Chaz Ebert said she would tell caregivers to: “roll up their sleeves, mobilize the troops, and no matter how bad the situation, get them to think things are going to turn out ok”. Then she gave some good advice that I will summarize in this article but I recommend that you read the entire interview. She has five recommendations:

1. Pray for guidance, and I don’t mean just in a religious sense.

2. Maintain your hope and faith that things will turn out OK, even if people tell you that you are “in denial”.

3. Surround yourselves with a support group of family and friends.

4. Go on the Internet and look up everything you can about the illness. Everything you read there may not be true or accurate, but at least you get some sort of education.

5. Don’t be afraid to question the doctors. Ask as many questions as you think you need to ask.

Her final comment is also good advice about handling the uncertainty of the “future”.  Chaz said: “We are very optimistic about the future. Every day is still fun….  Sometimes I’m almost ashamed we feel so positive.  People think you shouldn’t be so happy, because when you fall it’s going to be that much more disappointing. But you know what? We’ll take each day as it comes.”
