Cancer Caregivers Help Patients Fight Fatigue

CRF also known as Cancer Related Fatigue, can commonly be mistaken for simple tiredness. However, Cancer Related Fatigue is far more severe in the sense that the whole body is excessively tired, debilitating you from daily routines. Suddenly simple tasks such as cleaning, grocery shopping, or even driving can become cumbersome and physically taxing tasks. While no amount of sleep can fully relieve it, CRF can occur sporadically and suddenly. There is no known reason for exactly why CRF occurs, but it is linked to a plethora of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or hormone therapy. Even after cancer, CRF can persist. Unfortunately, due to the numerous medical causes, finding a cure can be quite difficult.
