Some people may never know what it’s like to wait for a diagnosis if they have cancer or not,
They may never know the fear of the diagnosis,
What it’s like to have chemo burn your veins,
To have the pain associated with bone marrow tests,
To feel nauseous from something meant to heal you,
They may never have radiation killing your bone marrow in hopes to kill cancer,
Some may never know what it’s like to watch a parent or child go through these things,
Some kids may never know what it’s like to skip important events with friends because you don’t want to leave your mom alone while she is sick.
Some may never have to wonder if your mom will make it to your graduation, or help you prepare for prom!
They may never have to stay home alone worrying while their parent is in the hospital.
Some kids may never have to take on household responsibilities of an adult because their parent is too sick.
These are all things that my daughters and I have experienced in the last two years, and the reason I raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society so that those who have never experienced these things first hand can know one day there will be a cure and they may never have to know what it’s like!
