The Start of Lending Hearts

It is difficult to put into words the thoughts and feelings when someone you love is diagnosed with cancer. You freeze in shock. Your mind stops. You can’t speak. You can’t hear. It feels like you are trapped in your worst nightmare. The only way I know how to relate the feeling is to reference 9/11; a date nearly everyone knows the significance of. When people think of 9/11, their memories race back to where they were and what they were doing on that tragic date. The date and moment a person and family are informed of a cancer diagnosis, that particular date becomes engraved in their minds and hearts. For our family, that date was 2/5/2004. This is the date my sister, Constance, was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s disease. Read More
