In a way, I know how reassuring it can be just to have someone there to listen, or to just be there, and I hope that I'll be able to in the very least, do the same for others who are afflicted by cancer and other ailments for however long I have left.
- 0Jan 21, '12 by Sarah96Cancer is an awful thing, but is actually what led me in the direction of nursing in the first place. My dad past away last year from gastric cancer. Up until his death he had nurses from hospice coming to our home to care for him. She walked in on one of his final days and noticed me adjusting his wheelchair and washing his face. She looked at me and said "You're going to be a nurse someday, aren't you?" It was then that I knew it was what I wanted to do. I am still a high school student but I'm taking the steps to becoming a Licensed Nursing Assistant in my state. I'm sorry to hear about the experiences you all have had with cancer. It is both painful to go through and painful to watch. My thoughts are with you all. Just remember that there is ALWAYS a positive outlook to things. One has to hit rock bottom before they can rise up! God Bless <3
