Lost loved one - Snooks

Loss Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 11, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Breast cancer taught me to be a more compassionate person. During my hospitalizations, I learned to be more compassionate towards my family, friemds, and nurses that were helping me to get well. I found a new appreciation for my husband and the care he gave me. My husband had this intense dislike for hospitals so he would drop me off for my chemo treatments and he would come back in a few hours. None of the staff at the hospital could understand this, but I respected his feelings. He hovered over me during the six months I was in treatment, and that love and care was what helped me to repay him when he took ill with leukemia and eventually died. Because of my cancer, I had a better understanding of what my husband was experiencing.
