Thank you for sharing such an important message. While I was in college I volunteered at a children’s cancer center where they went for their chemos. I was studying early childhood ed so my job was to keep the kids active happy and entertained while they waited (sometimes for hours). I would plan fun activities for them… I ended up stopping because I couldn’t take it any longer, I got very depressed and went home everyday crying. I decided to stop because I was not well- how was I going to keep children happy if I myself was miserable? It’s very heartbreaking. Then, I lost my father to lung cancer. So this is a very sensitive topic for me, and your post has truly touched me…. thank you
