Finding Solace in Sylvia Solomon's "ABC's of Cancer"
One of the hardest things about working in the medical field is the constant exposure to people who are sick, hurting, or in some cases dying. It’s not easy to be around people who are hurting, to be around people who may be discouraged. It has to be even more difficult for people who work with terminal or high-risk patients.
It’s hard because sometimes there’s not much you can personally do. You see a person struggling and you want to help, but sometimes you just can’t. All you can do is try to encourage them.
We stumbled across this piece the other day, and we thought it was pretty inspiring. We know that there are a lot of people out there who may be struggling, who may either know someone or be suffering themselves from a serious disease like cancer. We wanted to put this out there as a source for encouragement, as a reminder that there’s still so much to look forward to; so much to be accomplished. With that being said, we hope this encourages someone out there.
