CONCLUSIONS: Informal caregivers who provided reflexology to individuals with cancer did not have negative psychological, physical, or social outcomes. Fatigue levels were lower among caregivers who provided reflexology.

However, what frosted me the most was constantly playing 6 degrees of separation from the attending.
