"When my Mother was going through the chemotherapy treatments, it pained me to watch as this optimistic, warm, loving woman slowly deteriorate to nothing. As time grew on, she felt she was gradually losing her dignity as she resorted to the use of a colostomy bag because of kidney complications. The former warm glow in her cheeks was being replaced with an ashy, tired look. I could tell she was just giving up. Her desire to go on was gone and ultimately passed away from the one of the “side effects” of breast cancer, kidney failure.
I feel that each person, who has to go through this battle, needs to feel a sense of hope. She needs to be treated as a whole person - body and soul. Preventative steps need to happen so she has her energy and glow, that something to make her smile, that glimmer of hope and reassurance that she is not alone. She matters!"
