Introduction: The family caregivers of people with some chronic illness face different challenges during the patient's treatment. This research aimes to describe and understand how the resilience process takes place in family caregivers from patients with lymphatic or myeloid leukemia, whether or not it's acute or chronic.

Participants were 14 family caregivers who were attending leukemia patients, 10 were female and 4 were male, hospitalized in a university hospital in the State of Goiás, Brazil.

The following instruments were used: Sociodemographic questionnaire, interview script, coping strategies, and inventory of Folkman and Lazarus (IEC), adapted for Brazil by Savóia, Santana and Mejias (1996).
Findings: Among the main results, it was perceived that adequate social support, feeling of   belonging to the family group and having an organized relationship with the patient are factors that contribute to the process of resilience.
