Today my husband went for IV fluid replacement before he had his radiation treatment. He had Cisplatin on Friday and so they gave him IV fluids yesterday and today. While we were getting the fluids, a young girl , probably mid twenties came in for chemo. She looked so ill and I know from the conversation she had on the phone that she had children. It suddenly struck me how cruel cancer is. This was our third time in the infusion center and each time I have seen so many young adults. One of the patients had her baby with her.
I guess it's made me realize how lucky my husband and I are. Cancer is never fair but it just seems more cruel when I see young people with it. It was a reality check and I will not say " why us" anymore. I will say, " why anyone?" They shouldn't have to be facing this at such a young age.
My heart aches for all who suffer from this cruel disease called cancer.
