Erin Bishop was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2020 and through surgery, chemotherapy, and a mastectomy, she was bedridden and depended upon her husband Steve to do everything – the cooking, cleaning, shopping, and work. He has been an “amazing caregiver” and Erin wanted to thank him. CaringOn arranged a skiing trip for Steve and his best friend to enjoy in western Maryland.
Steve wrote CaringOn this note:
Thank you so much for selecting me to receive such a wonderful gift from CaringOn. I’m so excited for the upcoming weekend getaway at Deep Creek Lake! Like many, I never thought I’d have to be the caregiver for a family member, in this case, my wife Erin. But in March 2020 after Erin’s breast cancer diagnosis, I was thrust into the position of caregiver and quickly overwhelmed. It has been a long ten months and supporting Erin is still priority #1 in our home. Having my caregiver efforts recognized By CaringOn has energized me for continuing my support to Erin as she travels the road to recovery in 2021.
I look forward to relaxing and taking a break from my caregiver responsibilities in a beautiful vacation setting at Deep Creek Lake in early March. Thank you again and to the many others who enable CaringOn to fulfill its mission.
