Boehringer Ingelheim has partnered with Cancer Care to launch My Cancer Circle an online tool for carers of cancer patients. The free and customisable tool helps carers answer questions about how to support and help cancer patients. Online communities bring together friends, family and volunteers to talk in a safe environment about their experiences caring for loved ones who are affected by the disease. Cancer affects all members of a family and it can be difficult for carers to express how they feel in an outlet where they won't feel judged and be understood by people experiencing the same feelings.
“Boehringer Ingelheim recognizes that caregivers provide enormous support for their loved ones with cancer, and they too need to be supported,” said Kevin Lokay, Vice President and Business Unit Head, Oncology, at Boehringer Ingelheim. “This service demonstrates Boehringer Ingelheim’s goal to help support people facing cancer as well as those who care for them every day. We are thrilled to be collaborating with CancerCare and Lotsa Helping Hands on this important initiative.”
